Oct 2012 — New Planting

Sometimes the garden gets away from us, and periodically we focus on different areas to clean up, prune and remove things. This was the objective in the front area, between the house and the front fence in October. Although we frequently lose trees, others are growing well and developing tall trunks and good canopies. An area of new planting is replacing old rambutan trees that are gradually all being removed from the front area.

To see the list of new plantings since June this year, go to Plant Lists and check out the ones with the label NEW! Many thanks to University of Malaya intern Nur Syafik Maskawi for help with updating the Rimbun Dahan websites with our new plantings.
