On 24th of May, 5 ladies went out against torrential rain to k. Somchai’s garden to see rare helliconia and few sorts of Musa of different colours. There, they also found other plants which were not grown elsewhere in Phuket such as Monstera deliciosa which they use it’s leaves for flower arrangements. And others are Passiflora foedita ( stinking passion flower,), an interesting sweet fruit when it is ripe. It was an interesting trip and after delicious lunch at Vareeya Resort and Restsurant, we all got home with one or two Gardenia gjllerupii from Joan. Thank you very much.
There will be more trips like this if you are interested, please look out in the newsletter.
