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.

Chives are perpetual greens. I have 3 varieties: local chives (Chinese chives),
broad leaves chives (it is what i call it) and western chives chives ( allium
schoenprosum). They provide me with a yearlong greens regardless of the weather
and its flower provide nectar for my stingless bees.
chives have dark green flat leaves, strong smell, and white flower. Broad
leaves chives is lighter in colour, flat leaves which is broader, mild smell
and bigger white flower. Western chives have leaves like spring onion but has
purple flower. It has milder smell. It was gifted to me from a dear friends, i
think she brought it back from UK
