Step by Step Summer 2014 Seed Germination Process

Post by Asim_Nawaz » May 16th, 2014, 9:46 am

Last year started my topic “Step by Step Summer 2013 Seed Germination Process”. Again as my topic concern I can provide information and suggestion for new comers how to grow flowering as well as vegetable seeds at home in your garden as well as in containers. Especially thanks for “Gardening Pakistan Forum” that may possible for not promoting gardening as hobby but also source of Kitchen Garden at your home.
My Summer Project 2014, I can grow summer flowering as well as vegetable plants from seeds.
List of Vegetables are Bitter Gourd (Karela), Okra (Bhindi), Cucumber, Tomatoes and Egg Plants.
List of Flowering Plants are Zinnia’s, Coleus, Cone flower, Morning Glory, Gaillardia, Sweet Sultan etc.
Mostly vegetables as well as flowering seeds sowing time will be first week of May 2014.
Here Fresh Images of Vegetables

. Asim, why have you grown Sweet Sultan these days;when do you expect its flowers? In Pakistan,it is generally grown as a Spring Annual.

. Also, haven't you sown cucumber & okra rather late or is it the second sowing/crop? The sowing season for summer veggies in Lahore starts around 15 Feb. Here, I sowed these in mid/late Mar & both are in the fruiting stage.

Munir sb. Last year i grew okra and by the time it was in fruiting stage, my neighbours sowed the seeds. And beyond my expectation their plants started fruiting so quickly as compared to my plants. I read in agriculture book that it's sowing period is from march to july.

Dear Munir Sb
Asim, why have you grown Sweet Sultan these days;when do you expect its flowers? In Pakistan, it is generally grown as a Spring Annual.

As far as Sweet Sultan grown, you are saying right, it is Spring Annual. As far you second suggestion again saying right vegetables and flowering plant seeds germination period will be Feb to March. I will grow flowering and vegetables seeds in the month of Feb and March but to due to unexpected weather condition, cannot properly germination and growth. Now-a-days at my home some Winter plants still blooming due to unexpected weather condition. So far as vegetables Okra, Bitter Gourd and Cucumber as Second Sowing Crop because last year I will grow Okra on 15th March 2013 and last harvest on 29th July 2013. See image of my Okra vegetable on my last topic "Step by Step Summer 2013 Seed Germination" process. So, I will grow Okra in May and harvest at the end of June.
