Being ambitious over Roselle.

Ever since red bugs ( Roselle surrendering to red bugs) attacked the row of aging roselle, we stopped thinking about having roselle in the garden. The spot had been replaced by lady's fingers / okra / bendi which produce fruits regularly, more than we can consume.  

We were invited by  Mardi Kelantan (Malaysian Agricultural Research and Development Institute) to participate in "Farmers Day 2011, Kelantan" (Hari Peladang, Penternak dan Nelayan 2011) to be held at the end of September.  The group will exhibit rooftop gardening as showcase, and they will sell chili, agro products, and seedlings. To keep enthusiasm going, I agree to get 100 roselle, 100 stevia and markisa ready.

So, these roselle are for sale!

Last week: roselle in black polybags

Last week: roselle viewed from above.

I do hope these roselle will not be too old 
when the day comes. I don't even know how much to charge,
I guess I will let the group decides, 
definitely at current market price.

  1. The little plants look healthy. I planted some roselle cuttings, and I was glad to see that they have taken root!

  2. I have been wanting to plant some roselles but have not got round to doing so. Hope they get snapped up during Farmers Day.

  3. Bangchik sudah melangkah jauh, dengan kejayaan menyemai sebegitu banyak, tentu sudah bersedia untuk Perladangan Skala Besar!. Ada perancangan?

    ~ something I had never tried, propagating roselle cuttings. It should be worth it.

    ~ I am not too sure about market trends... especially during Farmers Day.
