My sincere apologies for delaying the putting up of gardening feature articles on the Green Culture Singapore website. Despite my busy schedule and lack of inspiration for writing, I squeezed my brain for ideas over the weekend and managed to come up with two feature articles. The two articles have been uploaded onto the server and are now available for downloading from the Green Culture Singapore website for reading at one’s leisure.
The first article entitled “A sunflower that likes it wet!” focussed on Helianthus angustifolius which is a perennial that produces flowers continuously throughout its growing season. It can tolerate slightly wetter soil conditions which make it a good candidate for planting in waterlogged areas where the common sunflower cannot be successfully grown.

The second article was written on how to make a vertical garden. I have received a couple of requests to share how I constructed my own version of a vertical garden that was featured in Straits Times Life! a few weeks back. That was the impetus that got me started to pen down the steps that one can follow so that they can also make a similar vertical garden at home.
Note that a vertical garden is perhaps the best way to maximise the limited amount of space for gardening in a high-rise apartment. A vertical garden can also serve to decorate a plain and boring wall at home! Click on this link to download the article “Vertical Gardening made Easy”.
