Garden Sowed with LoveFriday, December 06, 2013
Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee -- Muhammad Ali
This very inspiring quote simply let us know how the great boxer wins. That is so true for that particular sport. But in gardening, best thing to do is to grow all things with love :-)
There is so much to learn in gardening. I thought I was growing my plants really well but when I step into a beautiful yard I feel really humbled. There are so much to see and grasp from those great gardens (and the gardeners!) that I have been to.
Recently, I was really fascinated by the garden of the Selangor and Federal Territory Gardening Society's honourable patron, Tan Sri Dr Chong Hon Nyan and his wife, Puan Sri Chong Eu Ngoh.
The garden is more than three decades old. All plants are not only thriving well but flowering happily as well. Read more of the garden and the gardening society in this article for NST that I wrote after the visit :-)
I had the privilege of walking into the garden as I am a new member of the society and happened to be there attending the yearly plants and seeds exchange event organised by the society and hosted by the patron and his wife.
I went home with a couple of little young plants. I was so pleased! I love growing young plants as I like to watch them grow. Plus they are labelled with their ID.
Besides the plant exchange, the society was also selling their Volume 1 of their Gardening in Malaysia book.
The society's motto is "All Things Grow With Love". Like it? Join the society or to get their gardening book, go to their website.
FYI new members of the society get to buy the bag below at a special price ;-)
PS: All pics of the garden are taken from the same garden on the same day!
