Native Plants Workshop
(A Gardening Workshop)

Native Plant Workshop 400 

"Know thy enemy, know thy self." This rings true in gardening too! While plants are hardly our enemies, professional gardeners and hobbyists alike can be spared much misery and frustration by choosing plants well adapted to the local climate. Small as we are, Singapore has a record of over 2,000 native plant species within its boundaries, some of them with ornamental values.  Plants native to our region are naturally adapted to our hot and humid environment making them potentially easier to care for. If the lament "this pot of plant had such exotic looking flowers when I bought it one month ago but it looks half dead now" sounds familiar to you, sign up for this workshop and appreciate the native flora that this little Red Dot has to offer. You will be surprised that you may have some of these plants already in your collection.
