I just got word from my sister that the second installment of the bi-annual Los Banos Horticulture Society’s Flower and Garden Show (a.k.a. UPLB Garden Show) is on October 10 to 19.

There’s a Php25.00 Php20.00 entrance fee, if I’m not mistaken; and the gates will be opened at around 8 am.

The show’s usual venue is at the Seniors’ Social Garden.

See you there!

Home Gardening on a Rainy Saturday

Do you have these ideas that often pop into your thoughts about sprucing up your garden?

As a DIY home gardener and still a newbie at that, I always have these ideas on how to add more plants in our backyard garden. The problem is always the small space we have out there.
