Monica continues her series of monthly tips for container growers in India.
1. The heat is setting in and it’s a good idea to water vegetable plants twice a day.
2. Fortnightly feeds are a good idea. Also feed the fruit trees that are flowering.
3. Get a small tree if you don’t have one. The shade and ecosystem, especially on a roof terrace, is quite useful.
4. Sow okra, gourds and cucumber. It’s also a good time to sow coriander and spinach according to the sowing charts.
5. Continue to mulch.
