Hi Shweta, 

Hows your Spinach coming along?

I placed mine in sunlight and also the drop in temperature helped I guess. Crankdoofus on the forum, from Bangalore, told me, stunted growth in Spinach is coz of weather. They can't be expected to grow in the NCR heat. Finally the leaves has become slightly bigger. Like in GGs second youtube video for growing Spinach. 

 

2 seeds of celosia have also germinated in coco peat but they are extremely small. may be 1 cm tall max? seem very delicate. How's your Celosia doing?

 

My curry leaves are happier after the transplant and new leaves are coming.

Hi Snorkel4u,

Gud to hear that ur spinach is growing now .try using soy bean(lentil) powder for growth as it provides nytrogen to plants.

Caalosia is a very tender plant initially so need to take gud care of it.u did the right thing by changing curry leaves pot n placing it in sunlight.

My spinach is doing gud.some of it got distroyed as I was out of station n in between there was heavy rainfall. Frown care taker cud not do the job correctly,anyways some of it has recovered.

Calosia too(big ones) died,few of little ones r left.Rain helped in growing shallots.okra has become little taller,bell pepper nd eggplants r growing at their own pace.will share the pics very soon.

 

Happy gardening

Great, even I am now leaving my plants behind me for 2 weeks so a bit worried. I held on to my horses and didn't plant a lot of them keeping this trip in mind. I will be moving the lemongrass and other plants to my friends house near by. At least they will be watered well. 

 

My sunflowers are also doing great, but they're not getting the sunlight they want. However the cold temp has helped other seeds to germinate. Like Balsam and Zinnia have finally started growing well. 

 

I am giving them a different supply of Nitrogen. I used a product called Boom flower, which is mainly nitrogen. I Spray it once a month, and its done good to the foliage. I sprayed it on Tulsi and now the leaves are growing crazy BIG! Will upload pics in my album and you could see for yourself.

Shweta, Awesome results with Spinach lady! Am jealous of it now... My spinach is just not growing, slightly some growth coz of the colder weather. I think it needs some pruning!
