Old and new friends

July 19, 2018

So nice to meet old and new friends yesterday, representing e.g. the British Royal Horticultural Society, orchidology, plant physiology, marine biology, the Expats Club, oil industry, Thai agriculture and the Lanna Royal family. Avid gardeners from Australia, Esan, Lanna, Sweden, Switzerland, UK and USA mirrored the cosmopolitan Chiang Mai.

Since we all appreciate the rainy season the sky blessed us with a break in the rains so we could enjoy the discussions and Thai food outdoors. Absent friends may use the free app Curio xyz to home in on Chiang Mai and Dokmai Garden to see and read about some of our trees.

We thank everyone for joining!

Just back from the excursion at Dokmai Garden. From the left: Mia and Eric (Dokmai gardeners), John (New York marine biologist), Leif (board member of the Chiang Mai Expats Club), Mark (a Californian nursery man settled in Chiang Mai) and his wife H.R.H. Mae Nai (Lanna Royal family).

Organic treats from Dokmai Garden: lime (Citrus aurantiifolia), kalamondin (Citrus x microcarpa), caranda (Carissa carandas), banana (Musa acuminata (AA) ‘Gluay Khai’= ‘Sucrier’), mango (Mangifera indica) and santol (Sandoricum koetjape).

Cheers, Kate and Eric

      We missed you too Ricky! Dracontomelon, Duabanga and other trees are BIG now! With the shading canopies little seedlings emerge too, our grandchildren. Cheers, Eric.
