by Mr Desmond Ho, Founder and Managing Director, Terra Garden Sdn Bhd

Two people living in terrace or link houses helpfully volunteered their gardens for the case studies to be covered in this talk. Based on the shape, topography and size of these gardens, Mr Desmond Ho has come up with ideas exploring potential possibilities in design.

Date: Saturday, 7 January 2017
Time: 3.30pm
Venue: Bilik Cube 1, Insitut Pengajian Siswazah (Institute of Graduate Studies) Universiy of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur (Please download this Map)

As a bonus, Mr Ho will also cover designs for indoor and balcony gardens...which will benefit those who have limited garden space, or have cemented over their little plot.

Terra Garden, which started off as Garden Mart Centre, in 1991 has grown into a reputable landscape architecture consultancy. Mr Ho will be happy to take any questions from the floor following the talk.

There will be a charge of RM10.00 for members and RM15.00 for non-members to pay for rental of the venue.

Please confirm your attendance with Ms Lina Santiago (016-2318504/ 011-28588786) – call or sms.

Volume 3 - Climbers, Bulbs,
Rhizomes, Tubers, Foliage Plants

This third volume of “Gardening in Malaysia” as with our previous two volumes, provides gorgeous photographs accompanied by useful information about the plants themselves. The subjects of this volume are climbers, bulbs, rhizomes, tubers and foliage plants. Some as you will appreciate are prima donnas like stephanotis demanding constant attention, while others like Honolulu creeper will happily reach for the sky with hardly a glance. We hope this volume will help you choose the most suitable plant for your garden. In addition there are eighteen chapters, many more than in previous volumes, with practical advice to guarantee you the most beautiful specimens of these lovelies.
