I bought 5 kG Vermicompost for 30 Rs. Quality was OK as there were too many lumps

Hmmm, I know a shop in Sikanderpur (just before the nurseries start on your left). Its next to a tyre puncture repair shop. He always has huge piles of compost outside his shop every  morning some trailers dump that there.

Now he calls them Okhla Khaad, some people say that's only good for lawns. Not for pots and containers. Any clues?

Okhla Khaad is made from Okhla sludge ( sewage) . Coco-Peat is made from Coconut husk and is available in compressed bricks.I buy all the stuff including excellent Vermi Compost from Rajdhani Nursery ( Karbala) at JorBagh Delhi. You are right ;Okhla sludge in its wettest form is just dumped over lawns in winters.

Wow, Thanks Gulshan.

Even I was of the opinion that Okhla Khaad is actually made from sewage. So do you think Okhla haad won't be good and useful for container gardening?

How's the Vermi Compost you buy from Rajdhani Nursery? Which is the closest Metro station? How is it priced?

How do you mix it for your containers?

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

Nearest Station is Jorbagh itself. A 50 kg bag costs Rs. 375/- . They have bags of 25 and 5 kgs too.( land line no. 011-4631999). Quality is excellent. 

 Okhla Khaad coming from the Okhla plant is nice,dry and crumbly. Good to use.

For my seed pans I use bottom 1.5 inches normal soil and the upper layer is a mix of Soilrite and Vermicompost in equal parts. For the baskets it is a mix of normal soil,coco-peat,soilrite and vermi compost. 

Soilrite is available in 1 kg bags @ Rs. 60/kg from Rajdhani nursery .

For the larger pots especially if I'm re-potting I go by my judgement of the existing soil and modify. 

Not everything succeeds but the joy of growing is far greater than failure.

Currently having a good crop of small brinjals ( Purple as well as green) .All being grown in pots.
