I restarted gardening mid September 2012, it's still in the growing phase as you can see, but I've already had a bountiful eggplant harvest...

Manu,

 

Your setup is superb!. Looks very professional and the plants look very healthy(touch wood). I think you should change your handle name "Frustrated gardener" to something like that reflects your success in the garden.. what say? 🙂

 

Keep the pictures coming..

Hi Manu,

 

Great harvest. You should probably write a post or something on how you went about doing this.

 

Thanks

beautiful! made my day. GG, where can I buy growbags and seedling trays in Chennai? Hope Garden Guru has taken off well... am guessing it has, as your posts are fewer and far between.

Ha ha.

Well it is going good. The main reason for not posting too often is I ran into a water shortage problem in my apartment and I had to limit my experiments for some time. Now things seem better. So will start again this winter.

 

@Lakshmi:

You can check in TNagar (Parallel to Ranganathan St on the right side), they might have Seedling trays . I am not sure about grow bags. do you mean the black polybag or the cocopeat grow bag?

Dear Vegetable Maker, saw your blog and really wonderful. Couple of questions 1. Are the seeds from annadana? Why i am asking this is capsicum and Bangalore Red which i got from Annadana did not germinate. 2. What is Ha1 and Ha2?

Yeah the new plants are all seeds from Annadana..

I am not sure whats what in the chillies tray, I can only guess. The mini bell peppers didn't germinate, rest of the chillies did. I have some banana capsicum as well, which i might wanna try my luck on. Generally Annadana seeds have good germination rate.

Do you soak your seeds for germination?

Dear Vegetable Maker, yes i always soak in water overnight before sowing. Capsicum (Prima Belle) has not sprouted. As long as the general experience that Annadana seds germinates well then it should be..May be mine is a odd case..

In my experience chilly takes time to germinate, tomato & eggplants germinate in 2 days. chilly take at least 4-5 days. do as below might help rather than literally soaking seeds in water--

Take a paper tower put your seeds in it fold it & put it in a air tight container, pour 3-4 spoons on water on the paper to make the seeds moist. keep in dark warm place, you will be good. You can place multiple layers of paper towel with seeds in a tiffin box type container, that's what i do, it gives excellent results..

Excellent work, Manu.

When you use the propagation tray, do you keep them indoors or in direct sunlight? I did not try propagation trays, but small plastic containers for germinating brinjal and capsicum. They did not yield good results. What should be taken care of?

Hey Jay,

I keep them in direct light for few hours, few hours in shade, I dip the trays in nutes as an when required, at least twice a day. I keep a watch, every 3 hours I check the seedlings when placed in sun, as the water the trays dries sooner sometimes.

 

Anything should work for germination, I am not sure why your seeds did do good. But you can try the germination process mentioned by me in this post, it always works for me.

 

regards,

Manu
