Amazing WeekSaturday, September 28, 2013
What a great week it has been! It was full of sunshine over last weekend and I took the opportunity to do some gardening, yippie!
The Mexican Heather (Cuphea hyssopifolia) was the first to get a cut back. The shrub grew a little crazy this time round. Though it bloomed a little more than usual, I have to prune it as the stems have gotten leggy. Anyway, after pruning, I grabbed a bunch of the stem cuttings and placed them all in water, making my kitchen pretty for a few days :-)
One of the shrubs that I replanted is the coleus. Took some cuttings and replanted them... and they should be able to root quickly and easily.
My Crossandra infundibuliformis 'Shamrock' was a delight as the shrub was blossoming non-stop for a several weeks now. Also due to the cloudy sky, the flowers stayed on the bracts longer.
I also shared how I grew my wheat grass (Triticum aestivum), the hydroponic way in my kitchen in this article on the New Straits Times.
Watch how the wheat berries turned into a little baby plant...
Baby wheat plants are known to be highly nutritious and are used to make juices. They are packed with vitamins, amino acids, minerals, enzymes and antioxidants and offer numerous health benefits.
