I am really moved by the tremendous response I am receiving by members of Kitchen gardener to help out flood affected Poor farmers recently devastated by worst flood in history.
Susan.E.Roth suggested that I give a wish list for the convenience of those members who would like to contribute and be a part of this collective afford of seed distribution program initiated on kitchen gardeners.org
Few members are inquiring about plant. Hardiness zone of Pakistan.
Taking into account
With temperature ranging from -2C c to 40 C, I presume that most of Pakistan except northern area can be placed in zone8, 9, 10, 11.
The northern areas temperature ranging from -15C to -5C can be placed in zone 6 and 7.
Much of Pakistan is classified as arid to semi-arid with a tropical or subtropical climate. Pakistanexperiences four somewhat distinct seasons: winter (December-February), spring (March-April),
Summer (May-September), and autumn (October-November).
During the spring and autumn seasons, daily temperatures do not exceed 10-25°C, while winters, temperatures fall to single digit figures with occasional frost.
Summers are considerably warmer with day temperatures between 40C and 50°C.
In the mountainous areas northern region, subzero temperatures are common during the winter...
Major crops of Pakistan are The major crops grown in Pakistan are wheat, rice, maize, sugarcane, cotton, pulses (gram, mash,mung, lentils, etc.), millets, barley, oats, onions, potatoes, tobacco, oilseeds viz. canola rapeseedand mustard, soybean, sesamum, groundnut etc. In addition, horticultural crops including almost all the fruits and vegetables are grown.
It would be impossible to send seed of major crops through post, because of bulk quantity requirement. So it would be more practical to confine ourselves to seed of vegetables.
Capsicum, Bell pepper,
Honey Dew Melon
Kulfa ( Pursalene)
Lotus ( Bersanday)
I would also include some commercially grow flowers to help out flower growers.
Gerbera , carnations, chrysanthemums, mariglod, , poppies and orchids., Aster, gerbera, gladiolus, , antherium, orchid, marigold.
Here I would request all contributors who have posted once not to post again. unless I confirm receiving their first post of seed.
Blessings to all.
