I live in Karachi. I want to know where I can buy Epsom Salts in Karachi. I've tried a few places and a Gardening shop near Newtown. Please be specific :)

Another thing. My plants been showing Mg def. Its probably because my soil pH is too low. How do I increase my soil pH other than the use of Dolomite Lime? Can I get a digital pH meter from Joria Bazar?

Ashraf sb what are you looking for?? Chemicals can be found in Pindi in Raja bazar, College road where they sell birds and animals.. there are two chemical shops there where you can find all types of chemicals.. a bit pricey but are of lab quality.

Thanks Khuram sb for scanned images, I was looking for information like that. Also can someone guide me regarding fertilizer and spray for roses? I mean what type of fertilizer, supplement or spray with specific formulation will enhance flower and its plant?

Specialized Rose fertlisers can be purchased from seeds shops both in Lahore and Karachi.

In Lahore Arthurs Bowers granular rose food is available in 1kg (Rs 1000) and 3 kg (Rs 2700) packing and Tomato liquid Fertliser in 1 litre bottle (Rs 1000) having NPK ratio 4:4:8 can also be used for roses as well as bulbs like amaryllis.

For roses try to get hold of any fertliser having NPK ratio 5:5:10. There is Vitax organic rose food fertliser in 0.9 kg having NPK ratio 5 :5: 8.5 packing available both in Lahore and Karachi and i believe the price is Rs 1000 or 1200 per kg.

Or you may consider making your own fertliser and i believe Brig Arif Sahib has posted notes on how to make it which can read by searching in this forum.
