-Planting can be done at a spacing of 1.5 meters in rows spaced 2.5 meters apart.
-Soil preparation should be dug by making pits of 60 x 60 x 60 cms and adding 50 kgs of farm yard manure, 250 grams super phosphate and 50 grams of Follidol dust.
-Irrigate thoroughly after planting. Drip irrigation is recommended as it saves water and labour.

-Flowers should be harvested when the first florets emerge.
-Manures and fertilizers should be added 3 to 4 times a year for sustained yields.
-The plantation should be kept clean and free of weeds.
