Winter and Spring 2015-16 at Gulzar-e-Hijri

Post by Izhar » October 26th, 2015, 12:17 pm

I have started preparing the soil beds by adding lots of manure, my soil is infested with slugs so I would be using anti-slug pellets before planting the seedlings. I am planning to plant the following:

1- Red Salvia tall
2- Larkspurs
3- Petunia mixed (lets see what is available, Daddy series is my choice for this season)
4- Phlox mixed
5- Shirley poppies
6- Lobelia
7- Echinecea white swan
8- Holyhocks double spring celebrities
9- Stock Goldcut series
10- Marigold Inca mix
11- Dahlia seed grown mixed
12- Geraniums mixed
13- Cosmos Rose bonbon
14- Madia elegans
15- California poppy Summer sorbet

I am so looking forward to what you do and how you do it all. This year I have decided to start flower gardening (in addition to my kitchen garden) for the very first time. I got following seeds from Abdul seed store;

Dahlia
Calendula (Art shade double mixed )
Nasturtium mixed
Gazania mini star
Antirrhinum
Verbana
Cineraria (shade cupid dwarf)
Salvia (Shade- St. Jhon's Fire dwarf)
African Marigold
Poppy double mixed
Petunia (both big and small)
Carnation
Holyhocks

seedling are all sprouted but very small even after 15 days. Petunias are really really tiny, I am afraid to touch them. when do you think I should transplant them?

your advice is much needed :)

Just keep them well watered and in full sun... they will be ready to transplant by 1st week of December and they will inshaAllah start blooming from mid January till late March..

Please prepare your soil before transplanting, add lots of good manure and water the mix twice weekly.. by the time you start transplanting the medium will be ideal for new seedlings..
