This blog purpose is to share my success and failures in gardening in a tropic. I have no particular liking to any plant/ flower but once it caught my attention there is no other way for me but to have it. Since I’ve all the local plant that i fancy, now i cast my eyes far away, temperate flower/plant. Hence the existence of My Experimental Garden Blog. Hope you enjoy my blog.

My fail experiment
All is not bed of roses in my garden. My love for temperate
flower has led me to start experiment with it.
These are the conclusion:-
Total failure: Freesia never sprout, Ranunculus sprouted in
the fridge, it dried up slowly after i brought it out, delphinium & larkspur
Failure is partially contribute by neglect during my
illness: Hollyhock, foxgloves (Aphid love it), statice.
Failure because i do not know how to care for it beyond germinating
it: Nigella damascene, Pride of Madeira
Nigella damascena at the top and bottom
Pride of Madeira
Failure because i sow it at wrong time: Sweet pea, it grows
for about one metre before heat kills it
