Growing stuff on hot concrete – gardening in tropical Penang – what’s growing in February 2017

During my almost nine years living in Malaysia I have always remembered Chinese New Year as hot and dry.  But since September last year it has been cool and wet. This year CNY came quite early. But nevertheless right on cue the weather became, yes, hot and dry.

So now I have to make the effort to water plants, which I haven’t had to do much of for quite a while.

Some plants are wilting a bit as they’re not used to the sun, but most are OK.

So nothing much has changed, except that we could use some of a neighbour’s garden to plant some citrus trees, hibiscus bushes, lemon grass and so on.  Here are some photos of them.
