It is very easy to grow Chinese olives in Thailand. The Canarium album tree delivers black fruits fast which look a lot like the European olives and they also taste a bit like the original.
If you like to grow delicious nuts in a tropical country like Thailand, you should plant a Pachira aquatica also known as Malabar chestnut or Money tree. This very productive tree grows even well on poor soil and delivers beautiful flowers. We can deliver Pachira aquatica trees all over Thailand.
In our last plant order this year we send out 10 Vanilla vines, 2 red bananas and 1 Cannonball tree seedling. All the plants we send within Thailand are very well packed and normally arrive the next day at their destination.
Our cute goslings fully enjoy happy days at Discovery Garden Pattaya. They munch on delicious grass or pellets, have a healthy drink of water and enjoy the company of their many friends and colleagues.
Campari orange is a great drink. Using Kaffir limes, Roselle, Stevia, Cinnamon sticks and Cloves Hans Fritschi makes a low calories drink without any alcohol that tastes very much like real “Campari” orange cocktail. And most ingredients are home grown at Discovery Garden Pattaya.
Our largest Christmas goose weighs 4.2 Kilo. We cross the small Thai geese with the large Toulouse variety and thus get larger birds. Everything you always wanted to know about geese breeding in Thailand.
In an unique experiment Hans Fritschi is trying to find out whether hens are eating eggfruits or not? Meet Pouteria campechiana, eggfruit or “mon khai” as this unique fruit from South America is called in Thai.
The daily rains continue in Thailand: Time to produce new Bay leaf seedlings in a dry spot. Feeble roots in the clay soil pose the largest obstacle to growing Bay leaves in Thailand. Adding lava stone to the pot soil helps a lot.
The Thai rainy season is in full swing right now. After two months on summer vacations in Europe the garden in Pattaya is green as green can be, the fishpond will overflow soon. Bay leaf seedlings, Vanilla and nutmeg like the never ending rain and thrive. Anna, the goose, is female. The hens are starting to lay eggs. It is nice to be back in rainy Thailand.
Hans Fritschi will be back at Discovery Garden Pattaya and Nong Khai by the beginning of September. But you can visit both gardens during this summer break despite his absence. You can also order such precious plants as Nutmeg, Bay leaves or Thai figs whilst he is away. Just contact us by E-mail beforehand that we can make arrangements.
