Since young, one of my hobby has been gardening. Ever since age of 7, I have been helping my father with our gardens. By the age of 12, I was given my own chrysanthemum patch. I managed to grow beautiful plant that flowers well. Looking back, it was really an amazing feat since the temperature and weather have never been on my side. Unfortunately, when I left Malaysia to study abroad, all my chrysanthemum babies were gone.
Few years back, I made a decision to do things I really love. From just doing trial and error, the amount of information has changed how I do gardening. At this point, I am still into trying to grow plants from different climates. However, I also beginning to appreciate how abundance of tropical species that can be grown easily in my current climate can be "groomed" into some outstanding displays.
I stay in Klang a lowland city in Malaysia that enjoys lots of rain and sunshine in Malaysia. However, the current climates also poses some challenges with the heat and humidity, and lately with the strange long dry and wet spells. Occasionally my zealous four legged feline and canine friends also tried to provide some unwanted help.
There are also some micro climates in my garden depending on the location. As for use of chemical, it varies depending on the plants and sometimes depending on outbreaks that occur around my housing area.
In this blog, I would like to share some of my experiences(as scientific as possible) in growing some of the challenging plants. Please feel free to share your comments or questions, however, I would like to apologize if I did not immediately respond as I am still living in a life that I wish has more than 24hours in a day.
And most of all, hope you enjoy the posts.
