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.

Petunia double cascade mix
Love at first sight. That was how to describe my feelings when i go
through the catalogue for trailing petunia. I sow the seeds when the sky was
overcast during the monsoon season. Usually it is like late spring / early summer weather but this
time it rains for six weeks with few hours interval. The germination rate was
70%, however only 2 seedlings survive from damping off. Three days ago, it show
off its first bloom, 2 flowers today. The flower is huge, 10cm and look like
this morning: it is not really blue but more like purple
This is a double cascade blue petunia.
At 8 o’clock tonight i went out to admire the flower, couldn’t believe
that it is full moon already.
2 hours ago: full moon
The progress of the other seedling will be
updated. In the meantime, enjoy the photos
