Thank you :)/>

Did you refer to this?
Bought this from Daiso, supposed to fit into the metal holder (also from Daiso)
No idea what is it, it felt and smell a little weird when I opened the package..
But it loosen up after a week or so.. looking more like a nest
There's charcoal inside the 'nest'...

Hope that helps, cheers!

Hi Sis Aionios,

Your garden is really beautiful. I am really impressed that you can achieve this results along the corridor of HDB flat. Mine is just green and only green not much flower except the coleus so now i really start to addict to your colorful garden.
Will work on mine hopefully can achieve some results after using your tips on growing them.

Thank u for sharing. A good motivation for HDB grower like me. :flowers:/>

Cheers
William

I'm really impressed. Like you said, nothing exotic but just having so many flowers will brighten anyone's day. The sunflowers are exotic! I hardly see sunflowers grow like that in our climate. I've tried growing them before but it seems like they do not rebloom well. Just once and the plant deteriorates?

Hi Bro William,

Thanks, I think you are being humble there. Came across your Phal pic and that ARE gorgeous! I believe that requires tons of patience and passion to nurture in order to achieve that ... With TLC, Periwinkles are no issue at all for you :)/>

To begin with, I've got really nice neigbours who adore plants and does not 'plucking' habits, so that should be a bonus and half battle won :)/>

Cheers!

Hi Guppy,
Thank you!

Yes, truly those blooms are such a delight to each new day ~ especially for an impatient gardener like me :flowers:/>

I received a lot of good advice from other GCS forum-er about growing Sunflowers and Digitalgate's sunflowers is one awesome inspiration
Multiple branching are traits of this type of Sunflower, they are not re-blooms. Yes they bloom just once...

Hi Gooffy,

Thanks, my neighbour do come for photo shootings with her handphone :lol:/>
Yes all grown at my corridor, they don't have the luxury of living in an air-conditioned room.
Quite surprised myself, I thought cooler is better, yet they seems happy with East zone - from the rising of the sun, to the going down ~ B)/>

Hi Candygirl,

Nice plants you've got there. Keep it up.

But may be some plants are for some people only. Excuses excuses...

I can never grow sunflower this beautiful. I rather eat the seeds.
