The Best Plants For Your Garden

The lawn and the plants are essentially what makes your garden a garden. There are many different techniques and plants you can use in your garden, but some are far more suitable than others. Here are some you can use to spruce your garden up with minimal maintenance and cost.

Lily Of The Valley
Lily of the valley is an enchanting little plant that can grow in the shade, meaning you can plant it in garden corners and watch it flourish, it adds a blotch of colour to those hard to reach places and requires little maintenance bar watering. They can be used in conjunction with shaded green grass for a great colour contrast, and as a plus, they smell great in late spring and early summer.

Chrysanthemums
They usually bloom in the autumn, and are incredibly hardy plants that take a lot to destroy and uproot, meaning little maintenance is needed. If you pinch off the buds and growing points you can then ensure their bloom in autumn, a time where little else is coloured. By doing this you’ll have a great focal point in your garden when little else attracts.

Day Lilies
Day lilies are great for planting around bird baths and other kinds of water feature, and are widely used by landscape gardeners. They grow in almost all conditions and maintain their bloom for long periods of time. They can come in a variety of colours and scents, and you can also get them at decent heights, meaning you can create some great effect work with them. You can also get different bloomers, so if you stagger the bloom you can end up with an extremely long season of colour in your garden.

Greek Valerian (Jacob’s Ladder)
The sparky blue is a favourite for gardeners over the world. It is extremely hardy, being able to grow in the sun or in the shade. This of course means you can place them wherever you want in the garden, they can become a great part of a flower garden or alternately be placed on their own for a homely splash of blue. They are spring bloomers, so can give you garden that early bit of colour. Their care is not too hard either.

Snapdragon Plant
They can come in a variety of colours like red, pink orange and yellow, and are relatively easy to care for, just leave them alone and let them flower themselves. They offer a great vertical show with plenty of colour. Their blooms aren’t too long, but they’re great to have for short bursts of intense colour, especially if you plant a few of them. They are also great for bee lovers, with bee populations on the decline this plant can help them come back.


These plants can keep your gardens colourful year around and give you a break from constant pruning and replanting. If you’re careful with your location and ensure weeds are routinely pulled then there’s no reason why you can’t create a low cost/maintenance garden full of colour.

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm.......

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they?

Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
