November flowers, new seedlings and new Delhi

A rather cryptic title – I’d like to show you all the flowers that bloomed in November, all the seedlings that sprouted and the trip to New Delhi at the end of November (hopefully after publishing this blog).

Here are the flowers that bloomed:


The splenderous white Dahlia


The majestic rose


Thriving abutilons


Dahlia Imperialis – blooming 2 meters above the ground


Colorul Lantana


Another abutilon – small red and yellow lanterns


Chrysanthemums in profusion


Chrysanthemum of a different color in bloom

Kochia Scoparia – a bushy plant that changes color in autumn and resembles a broom in winter (called houkiso in Japanese)


Let us look at the winter vegetables now.


My first square foot bed with four rows of eight plants


My second square foot bed with 48 onion seedlings

Coriander, spinach and green peas

Third square foot bed with coriander, spinach and green peas


Fourth square foot bed – cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli

That’s all I have for you in this post, folks, as I leave for New Delhi on official work! Until next time, happy gardening!

    Your flowers are gorgeous. They’re all so healthy. Never seen anything like the Kochia Scoparia. I really like it. Wish you a fruitful trip to Delhi!

    the tall purple dahlia is so striking! I wish I could find some row cover like yours, it seems like it is reinforced, mine is not that strong and rips easily!

      Hi Sissy, the dahlias grow at a height of nearly 2 m. Last year one of the plants broke in half because of the typhoon; I think I should use stronger posts to anchor them. The stalks are not very strong; I suggest that you support them using strong posts. They really look good when in bloom.

    Hello, I really like your blog! It is so interesting to see what vegetables you are growing. Your vegetable garden is very neat and beautiful – not like mine at all (I’m embarrassed to show it!). I see that you are growing fava beans. I love these as well – they are an unusual vegetable in America but very tasty. Happy gardening and please continue sharing your garden with us.
