KL-based horticulturalist creates a Treasure Box filled with rice plants.
PETALING JAYA: A “secret garden” by Malaysian horticulturalist Inch Lim has won a gold medal and best of show award at the Singapore Garden Festival.
Lim, 61, who is based in Kuala Lumpur, also won the award for horticulture excellence.
His 80 square metre garden, called the Treasure Box, is cocooned behind a high wall and is filled mainly with rice plants. He picked the plant for its bright green shade. “I created a secret garden behind these high walls. Once you go in, a surprise awaits you,” Lim told the Straits Times.
Show gardens are the centre-piece at the biennial festival, which opened yesterday.
