Seven Roselle are not complaining

We have grown many roselle before in Putrajaya. The highlight must have been its beautiful pink flowers,  and fruits which end up as juice and jam. The seeds are standard giveaway to many friends and visitors, and some are bloggers from faraway land.

When we left Putrajaya home, there was one roselle still growing and fruiting. There is no point to keep thinking what we have missed. Looking forward should be the way in anything that we do, not only in gardening. So, roselle and ulam raja were among the first to be germinated the very first day we moved here. Talk about responding to germination effort, ulam raja and roselle are so adoring... Seven roselle are already on the ground, with two more in pots just in case, any plant fail to kick the shoots and roots.

again string is used to keep the row straight.

  4. I usually plant seedling in a shade and most of a time, plant them in a papercup. Once they grow big - I transfer them safely individually as they don't cramp and kill each other.

    I guess everyone have a different style of successful gardening.

  7. I grow roselle in South Carolina -- it is difficult to find the seeds here because not many Americans know what this plant is. Good luck with your new garden and roselle seedlings!

  9. Theanne and Baron: many plants in the pipeline now. each waiting for its turn. But the rain is too heavy for most of them.

    takaeko: yes, memorial as you said, germination is a lot slower. Probably due to slightly different weather than Putrajaya.

    Hocking Hills Gardener: it's fun and it's tough.

    James Missier: i dont normally wait for them to grow big, at most second or third pair of leaves.

  10. p3chandan: Moving to a new house is both fun and tiring. You should get new roselle seeds and grow them.

    Blogger Keats The Sunshine Girl: haha, garden is a canvas for creativity.

    Appalachian Feet: With the right campaign strategy about roselle juice and jam, soon the americans will queue up for seeds and seedlings!!

    wanie: that three sisters will be in somebody's hand soon. It's really up to them. New three sisters will appear here soon.

  11. I really enjoyed the pictures of your roselle plants. It inspired me to try to grow some here. I did get excellent germination and my plant grew to about 3ft tall and had flowers and fruit. It is in the greenhouse in a dormant state. I wonder if it will rise again in the Spring? Will have to wait and see.
