    hi everyone

    I am sesirekha joined few days back. I am having a small garden in my backyard. Actually we purchased a new semi-independent house 6 months back and they filled the ground with rubbish. I asked one person who sells plants to dig and plant some varieties. He didn't do the job nicely and he digged little and planted some plants. But the growth rate is very slow. When i tried to plant one new variety its a hard cement down. But i filled whole area with nice soil which is a mix of manure and red soil. I want suggestions and guidence how to grow my plants which are already planted few months back. I am regularly watering all my plants.


    Another serious problem is i am having a hibiscus plant which has grown nicely. But sadly it got infected with white fungus and all the leaves are getting wrinkled. And its not giving any flowers. Initially it used to bloom nicely. I used pesticide which is a natural one. Neem oil and some other thing ( i dont remember now some nursery person suggested and gave it to me ). Can anyone of you give me nice ideas to grow my plants nicely? Thanks a lot for your suggestions and tips in ahead.

    I am having hibiscus plants varieties 4 to 5, nandi vardhanam , sampangi ( yellow), ganneru, parijatham, tulasi plants. These are the varieties.

    sesirekha,

    Hello
    I dont know enough to help however I want to tell the little bit i know.
    I will get a pesticide spray for the fungus
    Add fertilizer to plant
    You can ask the local nursery from where you bought the plants They always help.
    Good Luck

    hi anandchitra

    :thankyou2:thank you for the suggestion. I did just what you have said few days back and waiting keeping my fingers crossed!!

    Actually, the land under my plants is completely filled with rubbish and without knowing i just had put lots of manure and red soil which is given by nurseries.

    I want to know what is the growth rate of any plant? And in my case as i already said there is no strong ground for my plants. And I planted them more than 3 months now, i am anxious that when they will grow in full bloom? :!::?:

    Dear Sesirekha
    I will share what I know. Which is not much.
    Regarding growth rate etc. my suggestion would be to surf the net. That is what i do.
    I am sure you're plants will do fine Not to worry.

    hi jadey

    No neem oil does not kill the plant. but i would suggest use neem oil cakes..they are better for mixing into the soil. oil tends to coat the soil and forming a layer not allwoing water pentrations. I use bleaching powder around the pots.

    spray the juice made from neem leaves on the plants regularly & check.this is a biocontrol method of using herbicides.

    Hi Plant lovers,

    I tried to grow 100% organic vegetables in my roof garden. ofcourse in pots. i had almost 12 big pots of tomato plants and one fine day small white bugs were seen and soon they spread to all plants. some one adviced to use garlic mixed with neem leaves and asafotida(perungayam) soaked for few days in water. i sprayed it on the plants and all turned dry in the next few days. I felt very bad and i am so deasperatedly searching for a organic pest control. can anyone pl help me out.

    sabi bala
