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.

sow this snapdragon seeds in March last year, i guess i do not sow it at the
right time (it was a hottest month in the east coast) because the germination
rate is only 30%. The first time i sow it, none germinates. (During the monsoon
season!) But snapdragon is very hardy; it is the plant that thrives on neglect
(as long as it has enough water). This is Rocket mix which is a mix which includes shades of bronze, lemon, orchid, pink, red, rose, white and yellow
coloured flower. The height can reach 3 feet and the flowering period is quite
long. It starts blooming in June and 2 weeks ago i harvested its small seeds,
while the other flower spike starts blooming. This is a fragrant snapdragon and i can smells its soft scent in
Now the temperature is less hot with and the night temperature is colder too
compared with a few months ago. So, for the 3rd time i sow it a week
ago. Surprisingly the germination rate is more than 90%. For those who live in
east coast, this is the best time to sow it.
