Ramezanzadeh F., Mohammadi Torkashvand A. and Khakipour N.

The impact of municipal solid waste compost, Azolla, tea wastes on the growth and yield of English Daisy (Bellis perennis) was evaluated by an experiment based on randomized completely block design with 15 treatments in 3 replications. The experiment was conducted in a field located in Lakan village around Rasht, Guilan province, Iran. The height of plant, fresh and dry shoot weight were determined. The size and number of flowers in full bloom period of growth in each pot was recorded. Harvested branches transferred to the laboratory in an oven at 75 ° C, dried and then weighed. Kjeldal method was used to measure nitrogen. Spectrophotometer and flame photometer were used to measure phosphorus and potassium, respectively. Results showed the combined medium of control, municipal wastes compost and Azolla compost increased plant height; shoot dry weight, number of flowers and nitrogen and potassium uptake.
