Spectacular Water Hyacinth Blooms

This week started on a thrilling note as it was the first time my Water hyacinth plant bloomed in my garden .I must say it is one of the most rewarding blooms as an aquatic plant beside water lilies.


The unique appearance of these flowers has  only one petal which has feather like mark imprinted  on it among all other petals  as you can see in the picture below                                                               

Although this flower does not much resemble to the blooms of Hyacinth grown through bulbs but both have some resemblance in their buds

Seeds Germination techniques

 This is my own experience in seeds germination that involves majorly three techniques that have worked for me most of the times with failing only once in a while  for Flowering and Vegetable seeds generally. 

Here I have grown Baby corn seeds by two techniques ;


    Seeds dispersed on potting soil and then covered with   light soil mixture;

                                      Seeds wrapped within Moist tissue paper until germinates ;



There is another method for growing  seeds that have hard layer by soaking them for a night in water and then sowing them in soil mixture in the morning .

While all of these techniques work successfully it would be advisable to grow small seeds directly in the soil mixture as there is no need for soaking them in water for germination.

I will add updates about the germination of the above Corn Seeds in the upcoming weeks.

Miniatures in the vertical garden

 It is  a good idea to develop a vertical garden when there is not much space available but still we want to grow plants like in a balcony or on a small  piece of land.It is wonderful idea to add some miniature accessories in your vertical garden for enhancing beauty of the garden.

                                                    A miniature meditation garden in the balcony                                                                

 It is fascinating to create a theme based vertical garden in a small space which adorns it much more than mere presence of plants and trees.

                              An village scene is created through miniatures on vertical Garden 

Miniatures add value to a small space and are easily available in the market at nominal rates.

Meanwhile Four'o clock  plants are filling up with blooms when temperature has significantly dropped after rains.

Garden Affair : Teaching from Gardening

 I have been into gardening from more than a decade and it has made me more resilient and patient in general .Today on this Teachers Day I want to share an incident related to Gardening experience that made be more patient and taught me the power of resilience.


This above is the pic of Crape Jasmine plant around Five years ago .These variety of Jasmine bear flowers in a year of planting .It was my bad fortune that this plant was dug out by troop of monkeys several times . I was somehow sure that it would survive even after such unfortunate incidents .It did survive and This incident taught me to be patient and resilient in life .I understood that we should  never loose hope and give up on small hurdles of life.

This below pic shows its first bloom appearing after surviving for three years in difficult situation.


I hereby invite everyone who want to join my link up party related to Gardening where you can share your gardening stories and experiences related to Plants and flowers
