Ginger Harvest

Hi everyone, it has been quite awhile since I last post anything on my blog! There's nothing much going on in my garden at the moment, as the last few months, I have been slacking in my gardening due to various reasons. Hope to get back on track soon.

Here's my ginger harvest from my potted garden, which I harvested yesterday. Ginger is one of the easiest to grow in a pot. I did not really take care of it, except to water the plant so that the soil do not dry out...after about 8-9 months, when the leaves begin to turn yellow and wilt, it is time to harvest the whole lot. You can however cut what you need when the rhizomes have grown to a substantial size. I did cut a knob of the rhizomes, on two occasions at the earlier months, for my cooking. Just cut what you did from one end, cover the cut area with soil, water as usual.

 Yield : 1.2kg, not bad from only 1 pot!

Happy Gardening !

Seedless Guava

I went to Sg. Buloh more than  month ago, and bought a Seedless Guava plant, which is suitable to grow in a container. It has grown so much since then. I did not expect it to grow so fast! According to the person I bought this from, this is a fast fruiting variety and should bear fruit in about a year. And happy to say that I have spotted more than a dozen flowers a few days ago. I wonder how many of the flowers will make it to fruit! Finger crossed!

Happy Gardening !

What's blooming in my potted garden

 The majestic and proud looking flower of the Okra

The tiny delicate white flowers of the Chives plants

 Gerbera...the last bloom was ages ago!

 The pretty purple bloom of the Brinjal

Small and pretty Blue Daze. Bought this plant from the nursery months ago and has never stopped flowering since then.

Tecoma Stans; yellow, bell-like shape, very pretty flowers, blooms in clusters. These sunny yellow flowers will brighten up any garden!
