Right now you have to direct sow datura and mirabilis for blooms within 1-1.5 months as the growing season is almost over, you have to be quick if you want some flowers :)

JazakAllah everyone. :)
I have sown some seeds of Sunflower dwarf, Mirabillis, Datura, Cosmos and Calico vine.
The sowing medium contains gobar and bhal mitti. Is it right?
Any of these plant have to be provided special atmosphere? because they are exposed to sunlight?

Soil mixture is good if Manure (Gobar) is fully rotted otherwise it will burn the seeds.... Humidity is relatively high in Karachi these days so no need to cover the pots with plastic sheet ..all is good.. Just remember to keep the seedling pots away from rains or else they will be splashed over or rot.

We have an option to delete members who have been completely inactive since their registration. Should we do that :-)?
On second thoughts i feel we should let it be as it is. Readership is increasing, even though we have limited actively participating members.
