Assalam O Alaikum,
We are planning to plant a row of NeemTree (almost 20 to 30 in number) along side road / bust stop in Karachi.
Since having no experience of this, need help from you people to please guide us on following points:

1. Is it better to grow from seed or we buy baby from Nursery?
2. How much deep should we dug for planting of seed / plant?
3. What sort of fertilizer should we use?
4. What will be the watering cycle?
Any other suggestion from experts

Thanks

Izhar

Best to buy 1 foot saplings.. this is the ideal size for transplant.. dig 2 feet deep.. plant and fill only one foot, leaving space deep enough to keep the water near roots.. No fertilzer should be used.. alternate days for 15 days, then twice weekly for six months, then weekly until it becomes 10 feet.. each and every sapling must be supported by long bamboo sticks otherwise wind will destroy them...
