Re: Winter and Spring 2017-18

To be honest I am bedazzled by 1: the enormous flowers coming from just one pot and 2: the shape they took and I thought that it must have been because of cages. 1 is something possible with the right fertilisation and watering; but 2 seems out of question for me (if I were to do it myself) plus I h...

Re: Winter and Spring 2017-18

Izhar sb in the first few pictures the flowers seemed to be coming out of cages.
How do you manage to feed and water them. I would guess with the garden can (with shower) and liquid ferts?
Will you please be able to find sometime to guide us?

Re: Planting Saffron at Home

Hello Aamir. Did you have any luck? I also planned to plant them here in Lahore but somehow couldn't find time this fall.

By the way, as far as general information goes; I guess you can pot them in pots with standard potting mix, keep compost on low and sand on higher side to improve drainage.

Re: Where can I get Morning Glory & Hawaiian Baby Woodrose Seeds?

I've bought some pre-planted in a pot and just shifted the entire (gatchi) in the pots. Would put them under sun after rain tomorrow. By the way they were quiet hard to find here but heard that they are sold in kilos in pattoki.

Saffron Planting time

Salam, I have got a hold of some saffron bulbs. The nursery walas are telling me (I've talked to two different people) and they are telling me that I should plant now (almost end of feb) in Lahore and it will flower next month. I can't make myself understand how can it be possible. Though I know the...
