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.
blogger friend gave me her extra buddleia davidii or butterfly bush plant when
i visited her in July. I have tried to grow this plant from seeds so many times
but so far none of the seeds germinate. Thanks a million Kak A for your
gift.It had bloom and produce pink flower.
It is said to be fragrant but i never detect its fragrances even when my nose
is only mere centimetre from it! My aim now is to get black knight variety
Of all the varieties of fig that i grow which is
already fruiting Black Berbera
is the tastiest and the sweetest. This is also the most expensive variety that i bought followed by black madeira.Both are from Portugal. This is the main crop, unfortunately since
the plant is small it only bear 2 fruits.
I’ve grown this rose moss since i started gardening which
was donkey years ago because it is easily available and easy to grow.Initially i started with deep purple and pink
bicolour. Subsequently my collection grows as more hybrids become available. This
creeper is not easily killed as long as it is not overwatered.
I rarely get to enjoy its flower because it blooms when i
was at work and already wilted when i reach home. Furthermore sheep really
enjoyed it. Recently i repotted it and
move it to the front yard. Today I’m not working and managed to snap its photo
in full blooms. Enjoy!
That is the name given to a variety of fig that i grow.I bought this cutting from Israel; the seller
bought this cutting from USA who in turn got it from an Italian immigrant who
settled in Brooklyn a long time ago.And
now its progeny made Malaysia its home. This is a white fig variety, medium eye,
big size and most importantly it is sweet and prolific. Due to climatic
difference this fig is not white but yellowish brown with red blush. Its fruit is beautiful
as well as flavourful, very much enjoyed by my 13 months old daughter.
