Hello Sudhir Nair :  All the photo albumsof Cauli Flower, Finegreek, Amaranthus Kerai, watermelon, Bitter Gourd and also the composting Kitchen waste are really excellent.  Since I am also an amateur in gardening, I am unable to offer any advise.  I am interested in the bitter gourd plants, which have not been giving good yield.  Congrats for your album and with best wishes

Thanks for your appreciation.Bitter gourd is easiest plant to grow.As one of the members here suggested cutting the main wine when they reach 3 feet height.This helped me seeing lot more fruit bearing plant. I would also suggest planting 2 plants of bitter gourd for better success and better yield.

If I can be of any help to you regarding good yield bitter gourd plants do not hesitate to contact me.Best wishes to you too.

Hi Raghu,

If you can find a place which is cooler in your home with some sunlight or can arrange a small green house like structure it will be nice to start Cauliflower/Cabbage/Noolkohl or any of brassica family.
You need a larger container say 12-15 inches deep as well as wide.Cabbage /Cauliflower needs to be transplanted to a larger container.
Also please do enquire in you local agricultural college or nurseries if Cabbage is ever grown in your part of Madurai. Here even though it is cooler during sunset and before sunrise the plant takes maximum sunlight and heat. I have heard they are grown in Cooler places like Nilgiris, Ooty etc.
Also I am attaching a you tube video.Even though explained in Malayalam language - the contents remain same.You can understand the way he plants and harvest it.

I have planted this Cauliflower in the month of March'2013 (It is very hot from 9am -1.30 pm) and still the Cauliflower head is just forming so not sure if I need to add any nitrogen mix or any extra manure or to change its position to cooler place.

 

Regards

Sudhir

Extra nitrogen is not required as it will result in lushier foliage. Cauliflower being a flower would not need them. A dash of Panchagavvya will be good at this stage (once in 15 days). Cabbage can very well be grown in Madurai as i have seen cabbage grown on terrace in Chennai.
