Floria 2011

For those with green fingers looking for productive ways to spend your weekend (apart from gardening in your own garden), you still have the chance to visit Floria 2011. Here is the details:

Putrajaya Flower & Garden Festival 2011

Date: 9th – 17th July 2011
Venue: Waterfront, Precinct 2, Putrajaya
Theme: Roses Are Forever

Opening Hours:
9am – 10pm (Monday-Thursday)
9am – 12midnight (Friday-Sunday)
Admission : FREE

I was there last Saturday during the launching by the minister, but it was too dark to take pictures of the outdoor garden display. I hope I could make it again this weekend, this time in broad daylight..haha!

I managed to get some herbal plants from a booth selling such plants there. If you are looking for fragrance flowering plants like akar dani, kesidang and kemuning which were hard to find several years back, do check out the booths there.

Oh, all the pictures above were taken in the indoor garden exhibition hall. Imagine coming back to a home with such rosy entrance..heaven!

Vallaris Glabra-Kesidang Flower

I found these pictures in my May 2011 folder.

It has been a while since I have any good gardening material to write about. I think the Kesidang plant I have at home will only bloom like once a year..haha!

I am not sure whether I have mentioned that I got another pot of Vallaris Glabra or bunga kerak nasi from a nearby plant nursery.

When I bought the second bunga tikam seladang plant, it was flowering. Now I am still waiting for it to bloom again. I have tried using the tut lentur technique (propagate by layering) to propagate the first Kesidang plant I have many years back, but it failed.

I love the sweet scented smell of pandan leaves that come from the blooming Kesidang flowers.

They are such a joy to my heart, see even the ants love them.

I hope I will be able to grow a tall and big plant of Kesidang in years to come so that one day I would be able to make bunga rampai for my own son’s wedding using the flowers..hehe!
