The Original Jungle Blog

March 7, 2010

This is our first Dokmai Dogma blog, initiated by the American Gardening School student Madeline Ragan. We are so grateful to house young people with fresh ideas, in this case helping us to link our experience from a monsoon garden with fellow plant lovers worldwide. Since I spend most of my time in the garden or reading books, I do acquire useful experience and knowledge, but at the same time I have no time for learning more about computer magic. Thank you Madeline for opening my eyes to the cyberworld!

As a writer for the Chiang Mai Mail weekly garden column, I first feared that maybe this blog would double the efforts, stealing time from the garden work. However, while a garden column in a newspaper is perfect entertainment in the bath tub, at the lunch table or at the train, the blog is aimed at people who actively seek information. Our blog fills in the niche for people interested in tropical gardening in a pronounced seasonal climate, such as the one here in the Chiang Mai valley. Our seasonal climate, also called monsoon climate, has resulted in seasonal forests called jungles. Rainforests have no seasons. Since many of our native plants are cultivated elsewhere, experience from their backyard may help you in designing perfect conditions to see them thrive in your garden. We’ll see. I appreciate any feedback.

    Congratulations on the success in publishing your first Dokmai Dogma blog. The format looks very professional and the layout is stunning. I appreciate all the work that it took to set it up and and anxious to see the articles, photos and information in the future. I would like to link your blog with our Chiang Mai Garden Club bulletin board to share the gardening news and views to our members. Good luck and keep up the good work.
    In clouds and sunshine,
