GARDENING IN MALAYSIA;
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.
