可以有步道 噴水池等等 戶外休息的石桌石椅 賞心悅目的花海
我們在加拿大北部 您可以有照片或設計圖 讓我們參考嗎??
因為不知如何下手??? 一直在找參考資料 無意間看見您的網站 很棒
我一般接的案子以市內民宅為主. 目前的趨勢是以低維護的花園為主流. 加拿大北部是指Qubec嗎? 噴水池的話有好幾種,大型的話保養較麻煩,花費也多,最好確定你們的需要和預算,很多好東西都不便宜.
花海是要一年生的草花嗎? 可以考慮耐冷耐旱並自行結子繁殖的草花,這樣只需大量種一次就年年有. 植物一定要用比你們居住的區還耐寒一點的,以防冬天萬一比以往的冬天冷而損失.
你們得實地丈量花園的用地以便設計用和照一些照片,蒐集你們喜歡的想要用的類似的東西,如:噴水池. 步道要用的石頭樣本等.. 這樣在編預算時有準備才不會被坑. 我做的一個設計約10年不需改變,10年後要依植物的長勢作少許調整.
我是從jean liu的留言區看到你的留言。你po 的圖示你種的嗎？我不懂英文。可是我也是花跟美食愛好者。興趣很相近，希望跟你多交流。謝謝。PS我好羨慕你的職業喔。
Hi Monica, 這一行很辛苦喔!特別是加拿大這邊冬天很長,幾乎是工作半年休息半年,春秋兩季忙死了,老顧客好怕我哪天不幹這行所以有機會就會幫我宣傳,因為是體力活+美學設計+園藝知識,其實沒有你們想像的那麼好啦–混一口飯吃之餘還能常常實驗新品種的花就很開心了,知足常樂就好! 所貼之植物照片都是我拍攝的,絕大部分是自己種的在自己家或客戶家我種植的,有時我看到漂亮的也會拍照欣賞分享大家,畢竟土地有限,一棵樹就佔了不少地呀,不可能像是植物園種盡各種植物的…我家最爭氣的是玫瑰和鐵線蓮以及大花扶桑.
那些是很大棵上年紀的柳樹,枝垂櫻我部落格也有介紹過,真的美呆了!有單瓣也有重瓣. 蘋果屬的垂絲海棠也蠻有韻味的而且不難種喔,秋天的葉轉黃和紅通通像櫻桃一樣的果實垂掛著還有相當可看的景致–我來拍我鄰居家種的貼上部落格你再回來討論看法. 你可以問M大葡匐性百里香的種子是否有剩. 許多好植物都沒有被好好利用發揮它們的美感和實用性…它還很香呢! 光葉子也香.真要當香料做菜用其實也可以的.
love your blog, I am having landscaping work done in my yard in the Philippines and would lime to share it with you. will post some pix on my site,,
Looking forward to see them!
對啊! 會超美的! 可是台灣的冬天不知道夠不夠冷,足夠變色呢?
還沒下雪,可是要冷+濕才會下雪啊,但每天可見結霜…現在是這週溫度較高,下週就正常一些. 氣象預報說星期天會下雪. 沒什麼花了吧? 玫瑰會殿後,最後開是12月中/末,真是發神經,不管下不下雪耶…最近各客戶的花園都準備睡覺了,還有一個客戶的前院在等橡樹掉葉子今年就可以收工.
Thank you for visiting my blog! So glad you liked the snowpeople we made today! It would be great to know how you found me. Best wishes and Happy 2013
I like snowman in your post, kids really enjoy making them. I found your post through wordpress.com—>find friend–>garden, then if I see something I like, I am not shy to click “like". You get to visit other nice blogs and make friends! Happy 2013 to you, too!
薰衣草蜜是很香甜可口,完全巔覆你對普通蜂蜜的印象…超讚的! 法國普羅旺斯的薰衣草蜜花香比紐西蘭的濃所以香甜的更加分! 如果沒有比較的話,紐西蘭的就不錯了. 500克蜂蜜約台幣450元, 其實也還好. 但是郵寄費用就貴了…因為寄一瓶的費用可以買一瓶了(還海運的喔不是航空的!!)…
I am so happy to see that you are following my Stonechat blog – it’s lovely to have you along! Thank you!
Thank you for visiting my new little blog, Garden Reverie! I am honored.
Thank you, too. I’ll be back for another visit soon!
Thanks for the opportunity to read your advice about growing plants & for visiting my blog.
Thank you for visiting my blog.
Thanks for visiting my blog and liking my photo Flushed Cheeks.
Thank you for the tip about Smooth Velvet. That is not a variety that I have seen at our local nurseries. I shall have to do some research to see whether it would do well in our area.
Should be fine because I am in Ontario, Canada. It is very winter hardy.
Thank you for visiting my blog.
Thank you, too!
Hi and thanks so very much for visiting me and for helping me to identify the sea thrift in my post from this morning. You have some really lovely Niagara shots here, and you might like to see one of mine that’s quite similar to one of yours: http://krikitarts.wordpress.com/2013/03/22/world-water-day-2013/. I like what I’m seeing here and will be back! -Gary
Thanks! I like your blog too!
Would it be possible for you to translate your about page into English, please?
Just finished doing that. You can check it now. Thank you for that and for visiting my blog!
Hi, I shared one of your articles to my husband’s FB page “Taichung city gardeners" thank you. I am so happy to find your blog while searching for strawberry spinach . I feel comfortable to grow and eat them now:) I used to be a landscape designer for 6 years in Virginia then I moved back to Taiwan due to some family matters 6 years ago. Hope you can share more of your projects or new plants you grow. You are welcome to visit our FB page “Taichung city gardeners" to check what we grow.
Sure, I will visit FB and check what are you growing ! Thanks for visiting and commenting my blog!
Thanks for visiting my blog & liking. Yours is a lovely one. Some really amazing photographs. Following…. All the best.
It is very blessing that we can enjoy nature, beautiful color, clean air and food!
Thanks for visiting and commenting my blog! Glad you live may blog!
Great roasted peppers post. Thanks for visiting my blog.
Thank you for visiting and commenting my blog!
Whereabouts in Canada do you live? Still snowing in April? I used to live in Vancouver.
I live in Toronto, Ontario. This morning was ice pellets then rain. 😦
Like your blog! I love it that it’s in two languages!
Thank you, that way I make more friends! 🙂
i really like your blog. food , plants and nature really merge well
Thank you, I am glad you like my blog!
Hi – I have come across you through my blog. I am really happy to have found your blog and I can see we are growing a lot of the same things. I used to live near to Toronto as a child and have lots of happy memories of the city and my time in Canada. How I envy your hot summers and beautiful autumns! I am looking forward to keeping up with what you are doing and seeing how our growing seasons compare.
Thank you, Julie! For stopping by my blog and commenting! Different planting climate really make what you can grow differently! Still has lots of plants to pick from or grow more beautiful native plants!
Glad you come by and welcome to view my more coming posts!–Jane
I am so happy to have met you! I am in training to be a Tea Master and want to serve and sell teas from Taiwan! I plan to visit in the fall and just started Mandarin lessons last night! Then I see that you stopped by and you are from Taiwan! I love the blog community! Your blog is lovely…I love gardening and plants as well. I hope to stay in touch.
Hi Cj! You must love tea so you are going to be a tea master and selling tea for living. 🙂 As you know, the most of non-Asians like Green tea, Black tea and Woo-long tea, other kinds of tea not too much. It is because marketing. More people into those tea with fruits and flowers added as flavour as starters but once you start to try more you learn to appreciate just good tea.
Where is your store?
It was very kind of you to “like" my post about tulips. I appreciate that you took the time to visit my blog. Your blog looks very interesting, and I will visit again. Best Wishes.
Thank you too!
Love your blog! Thanks for visiting Marian’s Art Studio. I’ll be back soon!!
Thanks for visiting and commenting my blog!
Thank you for visiting City Jackdaw.
Great blog you have- with Taiwanese, Canadian and Greek, that is a lot of inspiration to fall back on! Best Wishes to you from the UK.
Welcome! Thank you for visiting and commenting my blog!
Looks like you are a little ahead of us in Ottawa. The crocuses are blooming but not daffodils or tulips yet. Your spring garden is off to a great start. Thanks for visiting my blog.
Thank you too! Ottawa is colder than Toronto so soon it will warm up there too!
Hi again…I don’t have a store. I may…someday, if I can find a farmer who needs a distributor. But for now, I am still learning and want to visit China and Taiwan to keep learning!
Learning something you enjoy is always nice! I wish you luck!
Congratulations! I have nominated you for the Super Sweet Award. More about this nomination is at http://bluehyacinthoperetta.wordpress.com/2013/05/11/super-sweet-award-and-best-moment-award. Please feel free to take your time with putting up your own post about it, or if you do not wish to reply, that is alright, I just wanted to show my appreciation for your wonderful blog. All the best to you!
Hi and thanks for coming to read my blog and liking it – of course lungwort is pulmonaria and i have many different colours in bloom just as the moment, from palest blue to deep red as well as the traditional red/blue variety. You seem to have a pretty coloured one…they are very hardy here in the UK and beloved by bees – there is one solitary bee that has a specially long proboscis just for comfrey and lungwort…
Thank you too visiting and commenting my blog. I like plants easy going and behave with nasty spreading habit. There are few variety we can purchase in garden centre here in Ontario, Canada. It is easy to divide the plants or propagate from stem cuttings. I love these evergreen groundcovers!
Thanks for visiting and Like my blog.You have an interesting blog here with some wonderful fotos. Keep on the good work.
MFaF, thanks for liking my post. Be interesting to see how the garden grows – and I just love fresh food too. So here’s another follower…
Thank you too for like my blog!
Hello, beautiful garden and wonderful photos. Thank you also for liking my blog 🙂
Thank you, too! 🙂
Thank you for visiting my blog. I was in Toronto for the first time last August. Loved it — and Niagara Falls, too.(pix on my blog). I’m interested in your chicken wire cage over your plants. Is that your own design? Animals eat everything from my container plants.
I know, those rodents…it is all because some people they feed them on regular base and increase their population… I use the pipe to form arch, cover with clear fish net (animals they are aware that and good for plants to cling on easily), both ends with chicken wire, one end is fixed but the other end is a door.
It is just sad that we have to protect our produce this much otherwise nothing left…:(
積水的地還能種的植物不是太多選擇. 你住哪?光線怎樣的情況,平地還是坡地? 積水通常多久會消退?
到底是積了多少水? 很多的話,旁邊種的一圈樹是什麼樹,活的還好嗎? 很多種沼澤裡可以活的很好的樹種都成. 以下網站資料可能對你很受用,你可以研究研究看看囉…
Thank you for visiting our blog, Women Overboard! So nice to find a fellow flower worshipper!!
Thank you for visiting and commenting my blog! 🙂
Love your blog of flowers,thanx for sharing
Cheers! We do have the same interests especially flowers. Looking forward to chat with you and share interesting thoughts
Welcome to re-visit and chat! 🙂
Thank you for visiting my blog. I enjoyed your photos; and your subject is of deep interest to me. FWIW, I teach Asian history and teach a course on the history of Taiwan.
Thank you, too! So have you been to Taiwan?
I’m sorry, unfortunately not. I lived in Japan for many years, but have not been able to see many other countries in the region personally.
Too bad! It is quite close to Japan. Travelling is fun!
Hello myfoodandflowers. I love your blog! Just viewing all the pictures of flowers and gardens makes my heart sing! My mother (n heaven) loved ‘Love in the mist’. She would always point it out when it bloomed in our garden. Seeing it on your site reminded me of Mum, whom I miss so much. I’m so glad you found my ‘Hanging gardens of Barbican’ picture, as your website has given me the lift I needed today. It’s a haven of beauty.
Hi Clare, thank you for visiting and commenting my blog. I am glad you like my photos.
‘Love in the mist’ is really easy to grow and pretty, maybe you can grow some in the pot or in your garden! — Jane from myfoodandflowers.
Thanks for visiting. Love your photos!! Will follow.
Thanks! I am glad you like my blog!
Thank you for sharing your knowledge and pictures. I will be visiting often.
Thank you, I am glad you like my blog!
Thank you for liking my blog. I really like your photos, especially of the rudebekia.
Thanks for checking out my new blog! I look forward to following your blog! I look forward to your gardening tips and your recipes! Wish I lived closer so we could exchange seeds and plants, but I am in Colorado, USA. Have a wonderful weekend!!
Nature’s Organic Life
Thank you, too!
Thanks for stopping by my blog and a liking a post! Regards and best wishes with yours!
What an interesting looking blog. I love your pictures of the garden flowers.
Thanks for liking my Australian spring flowers post,
all the best
Thank you Chris! Opposite season is nice, now you are enjoying spring and we have autumn. I see some trees and shrubs start to change a bit colour…
There are so many interesting wild flowers in Australia, good for you! It seems more and more gardeners like to use native plants and organic farming. How about in your country? — Jane
Yes, I think more people are going to natives, but not as many as would be good. Australia has a lot of lawns, which given the amount of water they need to thrive and how little water most of Australia has to spare, makes very little sense.
As for organic farming…hmm, still waiting for the revolution to get into the mainstream here. We do have plenty of mins though :-)!
All the best
I believe in the future, we human being will change how we use water source because of globe drinking water decreasing every year.. That wasting on precious water to grow lawn for visual pleasure is such a silly thing! 😦
Have a nice day!
發芽與成長適溫：20~30℃ , Where do buy other kind? I could not find in Taiwan.
No, you can not find this kind of seed pack in Taiwan but you can get seeds from those people grow this in Taiwan (they purchased overseas) and collect the seed for charity found raising. Such as: 網路花壇,花花世界,塔內植物園all these Taiwanese gardening web sites have gardeners trade/give/donate seeds/tissues/whole plant/stem cuttings/bulbs for other gardeners or for charity found raising.
Very good website you have here but I was curious if you knew of any message boards that cover the same topics talked about here? I’d really love to be a part of group where I can get opinions from other knowledgeable individuals that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thank you!
There are some gardening website/forum in different countries to sign in as a free member then you can join in for discussion and ask questions. It depends on what language(s) do you speak the most. Of course, some local gardening clubs will be very good since they can trade/exchange plant seeds/cuttings/tissues!
Hi, Thanks a lot for ‘liking’ my post.
I have browsed through your blog, pretty interesting.
Thank you, too!
Thanks for the likes. You have a beautiful blog.
You are welcome, my pleasure! Thank you, too! 🙂
Thanks for visiting my blog and liking “Fire in My Garden". I like your blog very much and I’ll visit again.
Thank you, I am glad you like my blog!
Thank you for visiting my blog. Love your pictures! You have a good eye with the camera.
My pleasure! You got a big garden to grow lots of beautiful plants and edibles, how nice! 🙂
種子雖小可是種子的出芽率有100%. 只不過有的較快,有的出了稍慢. 它和台灣的本土杜鵑的不同處除全株及葉片無毫毛外花是末稍開十幾到二十幾多花組成的一大花球! 開時絢爛奪目,很搶眼呢! 🙂
I really like your blog. I just made myself a follower. My name is Juan, from Palencia, Spain. Thanks for following mine. (juanmonteroblog) I´ve got a small garden and I´m really fond of it. I like to preserve local plants and insects and spend hours meditating and taking pictures. Please feel free to ask for any seed corresponding to the plants you see in my pics.
Thank you very much for the offer! In Europe sometimes I do hope if I can buy some plant seeds / wild flowers seeds to grow. But I am wondering how cold is it in winter in where you are? Since your climate can grow more different plants than I do here.
For example here in Toronto city, Canada is colder in winter than where you are in Spain for sure. I saw you have plants I have and still green, how nice! Today here the temperature is now -12C! 😦 — So many plants are sleeping.
What else you would like to grow in your garden?
You can see my garden experiments of my posts. I am glad you like my blog. 🙂 — Jane
I have nominated you for The Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award. The nominations will be out this evening Oz time. I enjoy your blog immensely.
Thanks! I am glad you like my blog! 🙂
NIce one blog
Thanks for visiting my blog – one of my favourite things about posting online is discovering the work and worlds of others blogging in climates, landscapes and countries so different from where I am. Your winter portraits are beautiful – so delicate – and a welcome reminder of the cold which has settled in elsewhere at this moment. Here in Aus we’ve been weathering 40 degree days (Celcius) for the past week. Phew!
I like your images, I especially enjoy those fungi images you took in the woods, so unique!
As I know thhere is a type of fungus in Taiwan (where I am from) even grows in dark! Nature is wonderful, isn’t it? 🙂
Lovely blog. It has given me some inspiration during these winter months to plan next year’s garden. I especially like that you grow flowers up the middle of your drive – lovely idea. Look forward to seeing more of your posts.
Thanks! I am glad you like my blog. 🙂
I have nominated you for a Liebster award to see the details go to my blog. http://sonyaliraphotography.com/2014/01/21/liebster-award-x-2-sonya-lira-photography/
黃色辛夷花不是我家的樹,是我鄰居的前院樹. 種的好的話溫帶可春天開一次,秋天開一次,台灣的話一年最多可以開到4次但是都是春天花量最多,其它開花量會遞減. 全日照,需要施肥,其它不太需要照顧.
我跟鄰居有要了一些種子在播種中. 去年冬天我也播了幾個. 種子不需要冰,約2個月才會伸出小白腿.
聽花友說台灣有賣黃色辛夷的苗,也不貴. (一般市面賣的是高壓的苗木)很快就有花可以賞. 加拿大這裡賣的開花株一般也是高壓苗木. 5-6呎高一棵大約是賣100-120加幣. 最高的高度可到2層樓高.
想挑戰孵種子的話要看你住那裡好買好寄. 這黃色的較少有在賣種子. 而粉紅色最為普遍.一般網購都有的.
真要種子的話我還有一些. 如果你確定要花時間孵和照顧的話再問我. 我手上有黃色的和白色的.
just like you, I love flowers and refined food – the Taiwanese one is extremely delicious! 🙂 you’ll find some yummy posts here – if you have some spare time and interest, of course! 🙂
P.S. lots of flowers, too… I took these pix in the Taipei airport last year: 🙂
Very nice blog. I will start to follow as I do a little bit of gardening and it’s nice to get information from someone that really grows the plants. And wow you grow a lot!
Yes I do. I love growing and appreciate their beauty! 🙂
Hello lovely, genteel lady with the fragrant roses,
I will follow your blog, because i think it is wonderful. Growing rhododendrons from seed. What a wonderful little kick back at the “home improvement" industry, you radical!
And while we are on the topic. I am very very flattered you like my picture of the Ferris Wheel, it was a wonderful evening when the photo was taken. I don’t generally care (much) if i offend, but in your case for some reason i do … Some of my post are, and will be controversial, and many will have to do with topics “polite" people don’t talk about. So i guess what i am trying to convey is sort of an adult version of a “youth warning."
For my part i shall just enjoy watching your roses grow, and remain,
Thank you for liking my post and commenting my blog!
Magnolia grandiflora ‘Bracken’s Brown Beauty’大葉的葉面臘面綠而光滑,葉背是淡黃核色,花大而白很脫俗又有怡人強香,其它的都無香味.但因花大花數並沒有無香味的品種多,見連結葉與花:http://www.monrovia.com/plant-catalog/plants/1831/brackens-brown-beauty-magnolia/
還有一種多花有香味原產於日本的Magnolia kobus它也是開白花但花數多,但它的耐熱性較差些. 見連結開花照: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Magnolia_kobus_borealis.
其他品種是Magnolia ‘Yellow Fever’ (淡黃色花),Magnolia x wieseneri (白花,有人覺得是最香的品種),Magnolia ‘Wada’s Memory’ (花色為白色), Magnolia virginiana ‘Moonglow'(花色是米白色), Magnolia ‘Yellow Garland’ (花色黃色), Magnolia ‘Yellow River’ (黃色花), Magnolia zenii ‘Pink Parchment’ (淡粉紅色的花).
there must be a way to comment without always having to scroll down to the bottom – anyway here I am, food and flowers, two of life’s highlights. Thanks for visiting my blog that also showcases both and liking, I appreciate it a lot! happy weekend Polianthus
You are welcome! And thank you, too! 🙂
I enjoyed your very beautiful flowers and photos. Thank you for liking my Winter Flowers too

Thank you for visiting my blog, sweetbabyveg. I love your blog and your photographs are amazing! I especially liked the photos of the black squirrel. You even have pictures of it carrying its young. I so like what you do that I am going to follow you! -Karen.
Thank you, Karen! I am glad you like my blog. Thank you for visiting and commenting my blog, I enjoy taking pictures and try new food when I have more time. 🙂
Wow! I think it takes a lot of time to post on my blog in ONE language. I cannot imagine doing it in two. Amazing! I love flowers and food too, although, I am pretty “vanilla" when it comes to my food. I have a few flower posts and a page of recipes. Thanks for looking!
Thank you for sharing! It is good to share info with different people who speak different languages! 🙂
謝謝你喜歡我的帖子。Thank you for liking my post.
You are welcome, thank you for sharing!
Love your flower section! I believe Seattle is the same or similar growing zone as Toronto. Thanks for the lead on the flower seeds! – Kenji
Seattle is in USDA 8 which is a lot of warmer than Toronto city in USDA 6.
Thank you so much for the like of my ‘smile’ post. Food and Flowers…..you absolutely cannot go wrong with a winning combination like that. I loved your photos of the farm–wonderful pets, no?! 🙂
I had visited the same farm in the past years, they are having good care! You can see in their eyes with comfort and calmness so I guess they are good pets to nice farmers! 🙂
Beautiful blog!! I like your flowers!!
Thank you for visiting and commenting my blog!
And I like the sunbathing sheep too:)
It looks quite enjoy itself under the sun! 🙂
Thank you for the Like!
You are welcome! Spring is great! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by to introduce yourself. I will look forward to revisiting your blog. Interesting timing…earlier today was the first time I read about phlox, and then now here is your post about it. I will look into introducing this beautiful plant to my garden.
You are welcome. Thank you, too! 🙂
Hey I am really impressed by your work and our love of flowers is shared, I would love to collaborate with you somehow so please let me know if your interested
Thank you for visiting my blog. I too love cooking and my own garden as well as others, though now that my children are grown I don’t cook every night. I’ll have to come back to read more of your posts 🙂

Hello, I have really enjoyed reading what you have posted and will follow you from now on. Thank you for your nice comment on our blog. Outdoorsandindoors.
Thank you! I am glad you like my blog! 🙂
它是一年生的,一般1.5個月到2個月會出現公花和母花,母花要早上八九點授粉後馬上用紗布包起來讓它長大要不然會被果實蠅叮,若被叮後整個果實會爛(果實蠅會產卵在未成熟的果實內長大),那樣就沒得吃了. 從授粉成功到可以採收約近3個月(瓜柄會變褐色+木質化)….當農夫真辛苦! 不過能吃到自己種的也是一大樂趣!
Hi, I would like to say thankyou for some advice you gave me a couple months ago. you advised I save up and buy a macro lens. Well since then I have been out with the lens and take some pictures (now on my blog) I have also opened up an Etsy site where I can sell my work and get into contact with more people. please check it out and if you can help boost its popularity in anyway I would be very grateful.
You are welcome! You have nice images, there are tons of nice things out there waiting for you to discover! 🙂
Thank you now I’ve just got to get more public so more people see my work.
That is very good!
換電腦時我把你的e-mail 搞丟了, 幸好你的網站還留著, 發封MAIL 給我, 我有事要找你.
So nice to hear from you again. You had offered to help me identify some ‘mystery’ flowers in my garden. The garden (and life) have kept me busy this summer. I feel summer slowly slipping away, and it is only mid-August. Will you send me your email address again, I want to send you a photo of a green flowered plant I cannot identify, but I’m finding quite pretty in my garden. Thank you, email@example.com
Thank you for bringing my attention to your wonderful blog. Your information and photos are just lovely. I am definitely following your blog, thank you. 🙂
You are welcome! I am glad you enjoy my blog and photos I took! 🙂
I had some time, and was looking at so many of your posts. You grow absolutely beautiful flowers, such an inspiration. And your photos are great, too.
Could you please email me again, I have another flower, if you could identify it for me. Thank you.
You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or give me link of your plant post.
You have a most beautiful garden.
My garden is very small… 😦 But I try to make the space to be enjoyable! 🙂
I really like your photos of the trees and leaves against the sky. We are having an Indian summer here in Ireland so I have been photographing beaches and sunsets. Can’t wait to take some photos of trees and flowers now!
I am sure it will be soon! 🙂
Thank you for stopping by my blog, and for your kind comment. I love food and flowers too! All the best to you … Annabel
Same to you, Annabel! You should have the post later on for the seed growing. Looking forward to read the post! 🙂
You have a beautiful blog and very informative. Thank you for visiting my blog and liking “First gardenia".
Thank you, too! 🙂
Good post. I learn something totally new
and challenging on websites I stumbleupon everyday.
It’s always useful to read content from other authors and practice a
little something from their web sites.
Thank you! 🙂
You have a great blog. I was wondering if you knew anything about Monk fruit, and if you know how it is grown and if you knew where could we get the seeds?
Siraitia grosvenorii (monk fruit) is a vine, fruit is medicinal and commonly used for herbal tea. I never grow it myself but I know it is easy to grow between 15-32 degree C full sun moist environment. Where do you live? It doesn’t tolerant frost at all. Some grower will graft this on a sponge gourd to keep plant hardier.
Lots seeds of them are from China, I believe. Since almost all the herbal tea used monk fruit are exported from there. (They are sold after oven drying process.) There are several varieties of monk fruit with different shapes and skin/peel colour. I don’t know which kind are you looking for. It is a very interesting plant, its fruit is so sweet, 300 times than sugar cane. I don’t have seeds, you can purchase them on line such as ebay if you can get fresh viable seeds! 🙂
Thank you so,so much, your are a real asset with your information. I’m looking for the variety that you can turn into a powder form to use instead of sugar. So if you know which variety and where I could buy the seeds I would be very grateful.
Thanks for all your help.
You are welcome! I know in China they do not allow this seeds to leave the country…officially. And I heard some gardeners like you want to challenge of growing this type of plants so they bought seeds from India, really inexpensive. Perhaps you want to try. I am asking one of my gardening friends if she can collect some seeds of native Taiwanese monk fruit variety. These monk fruit basically are same uses. The common use variety has globe shape fruit.
I fond this. http://www.ebay.com/itm/MONK-FRUIT-WORLDS-SWEETEST-Buddha-arhat-longevity-5-seeds-RARE-GOURD-1149-B-/150962983927
But perhaps you will find other similar site.
you have an amazing blog, great place to learn and enjoy
I’ve never heard of Monk Fruit – it sounds so interesting. It also sounds similar to Stevia, a plant native to South America. Stevia leaves are significantly sweeter than sugar, though the taste is a touch different (I liked the taste). While in its native area, stevia grows as a perennial, I have grown it as an annual in NW USA. I harvested and dried the leaves at the end of summer & could put them in tea all winter long. It is now commercially grown and processed, and can also be used in baking.
Monk fruit (Siraitia grosvenorii) is similar as sweet or sweeter than Stevia (Stevia rebaudiana), both are good as sweetener substance. In some ways, Stevia is easier to grow and harvest. Monk fruit is vine, usually take longer time to grow fruit. But monk fruit is also useful as medicinal plant, that is more than as sugar substance. 🙂
Thank you for the information. You are such a fount of knowledge about plants – real cool.
Thank you for visiting my blog. I especially enjoyed your post on growing Cornus Kousa from seed.
Thank you, I am glad you enjoy my post!
Thank you for liking my blog- you are my very first visitor :). I have looked and your blog is very informative and I really like all the pics!
You are welcome! Blogging is fun and able to make some friends with same interest! 🙂
Last fall you were looking for some specific plant seeds. While cleaning up my flowers this spring, I noticed seed pots on a baptisia, false blue indigo, that I remember you were interested in. Do you still want some seeds? If you send your mailing address to email@example.com, I will mail you the few seeds I found.
You were so thoughtful last year, to identify mystery flowers I blogged. I wrote them all down & will use their names this year. Thank you so much. Susan Roden aka susansflowers.wordpress.com
Thank you, Susan! I already have enough blue false indigo seeds (Baptisia australis) from local gardener, unless you have different varieties otherwise for blue false indigo seeds I will not need more, thank you so sweet for your kind offer!! 🙂

Beautiful Gardens. It gives me inspiration for my own garden.
thank you so much …have a wonderful day
So very pretty!
I am a PhD student at the University of Massachusetts Boston, USA. I love your page and the pictures. I am writing a paper where I talk about seed sets in Rhododendrons. I would be very grateful if you would share the picture of “Rhododendron seed pods and seeds." with me. I will acknowledge the photograph and will use it one time only for the purpose of the paper. I eagerly wait for your reply.
Thank you in anticipation,
Sure, go ahead!
種子多為雄性,根據觀察應是二稜的種子. 只有比例很小的種子為三稜的雌性種子. 不過對這點中國和日本有不同的看法. 當季新收的種子你可以在雜糧行買到,並不貴. 曾有花友試過是有效的種子. 不過清一色都是雄性種子. 要種植雌性的除了枝條扦插或嫁接/高壓外,就是碰運氣找了.

Are you able to supply seeds of Commiphora molmol
I don’t think so. It is the first time to grow this.
種子要新鮮,苗盆使用培養土,充分噴濕後待多餘水分流出後播上種子,種子上面薄覆土以避光. 整盆保濕於室內通風的半日照到散光處,約3週出芽. 等小苗本葉長出4-6片後移植到較大盆或地植. 要戶外直播也可但需要注意保濕與害蟲/動物破壞.
我沒有喔,台灣有幾個玩家有在賣小苗,不過很貴,偶爾有看到賣種子的. 不過種子也不便宜,發芽率也未知. 藍色孤挺需要異株授粉才能結種子,若是想要未來結種子投資用,需要多種幾株.
