Just to start off, this has been my garden ever since I was 12. Used to just water it everyday without taking note of soil type, nutrition etc.
Now that I've started to revive my interest, hope the other experienced members can share a few tips and pointers.

The Saga tree in the biggest pot is my pride and joy, had it growing for 4 years already, germinated it from seed.

Sorry that the lighting is so bad.

Thanks! thinking of starting a food garden now. As for your question,I grew a pair of saga trees as my Gf and I picked them together. The other one seems to be smaller possibly because the pot is too small ;(

With the way they grow with their compound leaves, I seriously doubt it's a good choice for bonsai.

If you are starting a food garden, you should consider growing a moringa tree. Looks just like the saga tree but the leaves can be eaten. They are very nutritious.

Actually the small compound leaves are an advantage, I imagine. Tamarind bonsai is quite popular, I wonder if Saga would be also?

See some google images on Tamarind Bonsai :

Haha, I have a Durian sapling growing now,(The one beside my saga tree. If I grow any more trees, I think my neighbour wouldn't be too very happy.
Besides, I have a few projects growing now, will update on how they fair in the future

1)Chilli Padi
2)Large red chilli
3)Mouse melons
4)Black cherry tomatoes
5)Papaya(really very difficult to grow in such constrained places, keep failing, but since birds/my neighbour keep throwing seeds into my pot,why not?)
