Did you know that the laws of physics could be applied to enhancing healthy plant growth and yield, in quantity and quality?

If that is news to you and you want to know how it is done, join SFTGS for an afternoon talk with Mr Steven Chan, the owner and managing director of BIONERS, who has had 30 years of experience in Chemical Industries. He will share the ins and outs of achieving healthy soil, which is the foundation upon which sustainable agriculture is built and the emphasis of the work that BIONERS carries out. The solutions advocated by Mr Chan involve a combination of natural products and the laws of physics to boost plant growth so that the plant is able to fend off pests and diseases.

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 by phone or sms (+60 11 62200749).

Volume 4 - Flowering Trees

With the publication of Volume 4 "Flowering Trees" SFTGS has now completed our planned series of four booklets covering flowering plants, annuals, ground covers, herbs, climbers, bulbs, rhizomes, tubers and foliage plants. Most people admire the beauty of flowering trees and as the foreword puts it "in the eyes of humankind trees serve many purposes", but even more important to realise is that trees are essential for ALL life on the planet. No trees — No life — No humans — No you and No me. So please go hug your trees, flowering or otherwise. This fourth volume of Gardening in Malaysia as with our previous three volumes, provides gorgeous photographs accompanied by useful information about the trees themselves.
