Gardening - Soil & 'Re-potting'

 Reporting ...repotting....reporting repotting... Sorry ya...Late post today. This morning Mamarazzi went to buy some more soil for re-potting some plants.

RM5 for a big sack of soil. Wokay la...not you grade A type of soil. Bought from the nurseries nearby. It's the soil that the nurseries dug out when they re-plant their plants. There were some roots in it but hentam la. Inside also have loads of goodies. Already have those what you call it....peat moss and etc in it.

Main purpose is to give these lime plants their own home. Previously all were in one pot, hidden on the balcony.

Why hidden ah? Coz of the darn caterpillars la......it's a love and jhate relationship. If put in the garden, sure the plant would be "botak"(bald) in no time.

What type of lime ah....errr...actually Mamarazzi also dunno coz last year we had mini mandarin oranges, Kamquat, lemon and duno what...Mamarazzi just threw them into a pot. Some grew but was attacked by caterpillars till it "kojol"(died). Left these few. hence she had them hidden in the balcony...though see if they would survive or not.

Well...5 of them did.

 Remember our Basil Invasion? Well....after that there was black bugs invasion. Most of the basil died. Left these three.....hopefully they will survive la.

 A happy moment ....to see this multi petals jasmine blooming. 

 It had a wonderful scent. 

Just in case of another attack....Mamarazzi planted some cuttings of the Jasmine. No pot but plastic oil containers also can la...remember reduce, recycle and reuse? 


 A pretty but naughty plant.......climbing everywhere. Mamarazzi finally bought the "cucuk" thingy from Daiso. Ah...let them climb there la.



 Help!!! Spiders !!!.... Nah.....it's spider plants....it had loads of babies "spider" . Time to replant it and giveaway lo. 

 Another one that had become too big for its pot. This Periuk Kera(Pitcher plant) have too many branches liao...time to trim  and put in another pot. No more pot...again temporary use the plastic container la.

 Finally planted the Cuban Oregano from the Free Tree Society. Said to say Mamarazzi don't think the rose will make it. It's starting to turn brown.

 On a happier note, Mamarazzi spotted one of the tadpoles had grew a set of legs while she was changing their water this morning.


Where was I while she was doing all this? In school lo.... These days very tiring and hungry leh. Usually when she come and pick me up from school, she would bring me a cold drink ..maybe Milo or milk put in the freezer bag. Last Monday, she surprised me by bringing me a Pau (dumpling). Hungry ah.....sumbat all into the mouth first and sleep like a hamster. 

Wokay....that's all for now...Mamarazzi gotta rush liao.....gotta cook and pick me up from school liao....hopefully tomorrow will have time to blog hop la.

  9. I can't wait till those tadpoles turn into frogs!! Will you show us? Then will you keep them or set them free? The Jasmine is beautiful, I did not know it has huge blooms like this. It looks like a rose. So maybe not long until summer vacation from school? Ho long do you have off?
