Synopsis
Gardening is working in a garden, growing and taking care of plants, and keeping them attractive and productive. The driving force behind gardening is mostly passion. But passion itself is not enough. We also need skills and knowledge. Four long-time SFTGS members will share these skills and knowledge that they have learnt from various SFTGS meets and experience acquired from years of gardening.
NOTE: Fund-raising: There will be plants and organic vegetables on sale to raise funds for the Society.
Please note: There will be a charge of RM10.00 for members and RM15.00 for non-members to help pay for rental of the venue.

GARDENING IN MALAYSIA;
Volume 3 - Climbers, Bulbs,
Rhizomes, Tubers, Foliage Plants

This third volume of “Gardening in Malaysia” as with our previous two volumes, provides gorgeous photographs accompanied by useful information about the plants themselves. The subjects of this volume are climbers, bulbs, rhizomes, tubers and foliage plants. Some as you will appreciate are prima donnas like stephanotis demanding constant attention, while others like Honolulu creeper will happily reach for the sky with hardly a glance. We hope this volume will help you choose the most suitable plant for your garden. In addition there are eighteen chapters, many more than in previous volumes, with practical advice to guarantee you the most beautiful specimens of these lovelies.
