Hi Everyone:

Reading all your posts has made me a very happy man because now I know that I am not the only one who is totally confused about what fertilizers to use and when! Every shop advises you to use a different product---and there are so many on offer today that the dealers will never run out of something new to offer that would do magic in your garden! This makes out a case for us to request GG for a Post regarding the fertilizers/soil conditioners to use at different stages. Hopefully GG will find the time to do this. Besides this, I think we should not expect wonders. There will always be some failures with success. Kindly allow me to relate my recent experience. I took to gardening a little over a year ago. This season I sowed some tomato seeds (Bejo seeds). Germination was very good but after transplanting the plants were not looking too good. I was advised to destroy the plants because they seemed to have contracted leaf curl. I destroyed some. Another person advised me to feed the plants with a little Magnesium Sulphate besides whatever else I was using. I don't know what it was but the plants started reviving and looking a bright green. Out of the 16 survivors, one has 42 fruits hanging on it! But hang on, the others have only 14, 8 or less while some have nothing! What I am trying to say is that the Almighty has kept a lot in His hands. These plants are all in the same soil, are from the same seeds, same water, same fertilizers, have been looked after by the same hands and have had the same amount of sunshine. Why then is there such a great difference in their growth and output? In the end all I am trying to say is let us do our best and not get disheartened with any failures. The fun and satisfaction is in the process and seeing the seeds germinate and grow to bear fruit right in front of you! I better stop now before GG pulls me up!!

Thanks Satish for the nice write-up. Indeed - all similar seeds and in the same environment - but still can grow differently. We should not get disheartened. Nice early lessons for a late gardener.

Hi STS,

 

I have met one of the manufacturer of Panchagavya in Mumbai and he told me that it is very good but if we are only using Panchagavya then we should use it with Organic manure as Panchagavye has little "N" i.e. Nitrogen and to fulfill that requirement we should use Organic Manure little bit with coco peat to get good output.

 

I have still not tried this but will give a shot in next few months.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Deepak

Hello Deepak,

 

If you can give us details of manufacturer of panchagavya from Mumbai it will be really beneficial for us.

 

Thanks a lot,

Sushma

Hi Deepak,

I know this is an old post but want to know about any supplier of Panchagavya in Mumbai, as i am unable to find it anywhere around.

 

Thanks in advance,

Avi Tya
