Setapak Central, the family friendly neighbourhood mall located along Jalan Genting Klang, is marking its first plant event, themed “Bloom Grow” from 5 July to 8 July, 2018. The event will see plant experts, societies, organisations and gardening vendors coming together for a series of demos, talks, workshops, and a plant bazaar to cater to the growing interest of urban gardening.
Visitors can have their most pressing plant, soil, aquaponics or bonsai questions answered at the four-day event. Spend your weekend with “Soil Doctor”, Dr Christopher Teh Boon Sung who is a soil physicists and senior lecturer at Universiti Putra Malaysia. Learn a thing or two as he shares helpful advice on the various signs of plant problems such as leave drop, flower abortion, fruit abortion and finding the right soil mix for different types of plants. The “Plant Doctor”, Mr Francis Chuah Teong Kah from Urban Farm Tech, an aquaponics solution provider, will speak on designing and maintaining aquaponics, a system that combines conventional aquaculture and hydroponics in a symbiotic environment.
Visitors can also pick up good deals in quality garden fertilisers, seeds and gardening products from Serbajadi Gardening, a total gardening solutions provider. If big plants are not your style, meet terrarium experts, Terra and Copper Works, or bonsai enthusiasts – the Malaysian Bonsai & Suseki Society. For a variety of indoor and outdoor plants, Plant & Pot will have an exciting range of greens to add to your collection.
Calling out all flora lovers and enthusiasts living in the city, whether you have a home garden, a tiny balcony or just a windowsill, the latest urban gardening options that will be available at the Bloom & Grow event means it’s easier than ever for you to get your green groove on.
