I was privileged to be allowed a sneak peek at the amazing native mangrove seedlings that have been magically sprouted at Uvaria Tide.
Thanks to Chua JC for the invitation, I saw lots of lovingly tended mangrove babies. If I remember correctly, these are baby Sonneratia ovata. So cute!
Can mangrove plants be grown successfully in my garden? Don't they need seawater?
Yes, mangrove plants can do well in a typical garden. They don't need seawater! Uvaria Tide can recommend suitable plants for your garden and pond.
Sadly, Uvaria Tide will be affected by plans to relocate 62 Lim Chu Kang farms in 2017. Hopefully, their good work can continue.

Your support for Uvaria Tide will help them continue their good work in this rather thankless but important task of protecting Singapore's genetic stock of native plants!
