Anyway, I was here last Saturday. Pieces, No 15 Jalan Mesui, Off Jalan Nagasari, KL. I followed my GPS blindly and reached the place pretty early. Was so proud of myself for not getting lost ;-)
The registration counter. Shao-Lyn and Juergen from Eats,Shoots & Roots hard at work.Pieces is a furniture boutique. They hoard junks and turn them into gems. There were some really nice stuffs there. Open by appointment.
There were about 20 of us. I feel much better after I found out most of the participants are quite a noob in gardening ;-)
But what I like most about her session was when she explained the whole concept of organic gardening. Organic gardening is not just about health. It helps u discover your relationship with nature.And it teach u to be a better you. Okay...I am feeling so ZEN right now...wakakaka ;-)
The next session was done by Sabina from Eats, Shoots & Roots. She went through the concept of container gardening and how it can be done without a land.
Practical sessions. Mixing the soil.
Stuffs that go into the soil mixture.
Making sure the soil mixture is moist enough. Squeeze until u get a drop of water.
Preparing the container from plastic bottle.
Done. Let's see whether this mint will grow in my balcony ;-)
Other type of container gardening. Rain gutter.
Bigger mineral water container.
Self watering system. Completely DIY.
Full view of the self watering container gardening system.
Pests. Mealybugs. Aphids.
There are many types of vegetables that can be easily grown in a container. Kangkung, bak choy, spinach, tomato, sweet potato, lemon grass, garlic, loofah, lettuce, ginger apparently grows very well in container. OKAY...maybe easy for them but not for me...hahaha. Nevermind...must have faith.... let's do it ;-)
