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.

I love fresh fig but doesn’t everybody? I start my fig planting
adventure in August last year after i stumbled across a blog from Indonesia
regarding growing fig. My only regret is that i do not know that fig will do
well in tropical region during my stay in Europe otherwise i’ll bring home
cuttings then. Right now i have 30 varieties of figs and almost 100 plants. I bought the cutting mostly from Europe and
After mothering my baby fig for almost 9 months finally i’m
being rewarded by healthy plants in various stages of growth and fruiting. Yesterday i ate my first ripe fig; the fruit
is really sweet and juicy. I can only describe it as yummy J)) Another variety will ripen in next few days.
After this i can eat fig year round as planned.
