CHITRAL HORTICULTURE SOCIETY

Local Practice:

The plants are uprooted, cleaned and dried. In summer, warm winter clothes, especially woolen jackets, coats and blankets, are placed in storage. In storage, these items are vulnerable to moths and their larvae (locally called zapau gogh dik) which eat away holes. For effective protection, dried treshti plants are kept between these stored clothes.
