Purchasing Experience

Post by xcroon » December 11th, 2015, 6:24 pm

Asalam-u-Alaikum all,

I m searching on Internet about potting mixture from September 2015 and finally reached on right path, where i can understand local names of plants, fertilizers, tools etc.

Here i want to share my purchasing experience to my new hobby gardeners.

Shop Name: Terminix
Opposite old sabzi mandi/Askari Park
Cell: 0302-2043000 0302-2049000

OSC (Ontario Seeds Cananda) Rs.15 packet. (Comments: seeds are old/expired but germination ration is 30-40%) but collection is unique. Sown some in Early November, Germinated too n waiting for result.
Local Seeds Rs.20 Packet (Comments: Germination Ration 80-90% also depend how you follow instructions).

Always follow instructions by Native Experienced Person. Because seasonal calendar is not same all over world.

Peat Moss:
Srilankan in Brown Color: Rs.100 kg. (Comments: good but germination slow)
Latvia in Black Color: Rs.200 kg (Comments: Best and Quick Germination in just 5-7 days).

Coco Coir:
1 Brick Rs.100/-

Compost:
Khaksehat: Rs.100/-4 kg (Comments: Best)
Imported Compost Rs.300/- 9kg (Comments: have not used).

Vermiculite/Perlite:

Small Jar i think 150gms for Rs.500 (Comments: too expensive i left to buy)
I asked to izhar bhai alternate of both, hope he will reply soon.

All gardening items like pots all sizes, spary's, gardening tools, fertilizers, baskets, every thing is available there.
