By popular demand, Monthly sowing calendar is back. This time I decided to put it up as a permanent page of this website.
Most of the frustrations that gardeners go through are because of sowing a vegetable in a wrong season or environment. Especially for our Indian weather conditions, where there are lots of variations, having a sowing chart is essential and also saves lot of time, effort and needless to say Money!.
The first step to a successful yield is to sow at the right time and with the right environment. Considering that in mind, there are two charts provided. One of them is Sowing calendar for each month.
The other chart I am talking about is “Ideal Germinating conditions”. This chart gives the optimum temperature required for germination of various vegetables and not just that, It also provides the information on what vegetables need to be direct seeded and what need to be transplanted. Trust me! This question is there in every novice gardener’s mind.
How to use this chart:
You want to know what can be sown next month? Refer Sowing Chart
You want to know when I can sow watermelon? Refer Ideal Conditions
Hope this information is helpful to everyone . If you feel happy about this info and get all excited and grateful, there are couple of people who made this happen. My sincere thanks go to the passionate gardeners Satish Dayal and Asha. Thanks to both of them for continuous follow up and also for providing sowing calendar which formed the basis for this one.
Everyone, Please feel free to discuss about it in the forum. If you find out any errors, omissions or have any suggestions or good idea, dont hesitate to bring them to my attention. Lets all work together to make this calendar more informative and applicable to different parts of India.
Have a pleasant growing season and .. Plan before you sow!
