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.

Achillea Ptarmia "Double Diamond"
Today i'm writing about my successful experiment. I order
this seeds because it was on sale. Little did i know that it will steal a piece
of my heart, I’m totally in love with this plant. Its name befitting its
white dainty fully double flower; Achillea Ptarmia “Double Diamond”
germination rate was about 75 percent, it is not fussy, doesn’t mind a few days
of wet feet during the monsoon, it is a tough plant; to kill and to hate:-)) It bring forth its first bloom after 4 month of
sowing. It is perennial and I’m hoping it will get bushier next year.
