Q.

Slow Plant growth – Tree Plantation

Zone Mumbai 400008 | Mubeen added on August 11, 2017 | Answered

I had planted Indian almond sapling on the foot path near a building in Mumbai (India). Now 3 months are passed away and growth is very less. Some symptom i have seen are,Traces of cutting on leaves,no new leaves are coming but the existing one are getting bigger. I suspect the problem of root rot because i had found clay soil at the time of planting seedling. Need your advice to rectify the problem.

Well draining soil is key to success.
Amending the soil would help with drainage.
