These little Amaranthus Torch seedlings stayed small for some time. I hope they will show more progress now that the weather is getting hotter and sunnier.
I see flowers already forming at the top and have transplanted two plants out of this pot to make room for growth. So grow little fellas!
This Amaranthus Yellow Fountain came as a surprise. Earlier, I have already given up on some seeds that had failed to germinate. When I spotted a little plant sprouted in one of the starter pots, I didn't know what it was till I transplanted it to the garden...
Below is a little Amaranthus Illumination that was self-sown by its mother plant...
Mosaic plant leaves glistens even more when the plant is growing healthily...
I came across some Four O-Clocks that were growing by the roadside. Probably a garden escapee. Below is the seedling from a seed that I plucked and sowed into a small pot.
My dear Hydrangea has been infected with scale bugs. I am afraid I have to give the plant a heavy prune. I think it's the best way to get rid of the bugs, right?
The Mexican Flame Vine has finally blossomed its first flowers and only in my garden here I think ;-D
GOOD NEWS, BAD NEWS:
Some of you have left messages on my chat box enquiring where you can find certain plants featured on my blog. Some plants that I grow are actually not easily available in Malaysia (perhaps that's why you were asking!).
Well, if you are from the Klang Valley (Malaysia) and would like to have some of these plants, please let me know by sending an email to mygreenfinder[at]hotmail.com. I will let you know if it is possible for me to part a rooted cutting for you for which I will charge you a (premium) fee - to cover the efforts I have put in to grow the plants as well as to raise funds for a dream trip :-)
Enjoy all the plants that are in your garden and have a great day!
