Is garlic a vegetable or herb? The gardening world appears undecided. Either way, I’m really into home-grown plants that naturally pep up the flavour of everything we eat, and garlic is top dog. Compared with supermarkets, gardeners have a wide range of garlic types to choose from, with varying strength and flavour.

The team behind the China-produced remake of Singapore's blockbuster TV drama, "The Little Nyonya", unveiled the cast at a ceremony to mark the launch of shooting at Pinewood Studios in Johor Baru on Thursday (11 October). Veteran actress Xiang Yun, who originally played servant-mistress Tian Lan in the 2008 series, now has a meatier role as the powerful matriarch of the Chen family in the remake. The role of Madam Chen was previously played by Li Yinzhu. Dai Xiangyu will reprise the role of the dashing Japanese photographer Yamamoto Yousuke in the new series. The rest of the main cast include actors from China and Taiwan. China’s Xiao Yan plays Huang Juxiang and her daughter Yamamoto Yueniang, originally played by Jeanette Aw. Aw shot to fame for her dual roles as mute servant Juxiang and her long-suffering daughter Yueniang. Taiwanese Kou Chia Jui will play Chen Xi, the love interest of Yueniang, originally played by Qi Yu Wu. "Nyonya" is helmed by director Guo Jingyu with the script penned by the Singaporean creator of the original 2008 series, Ang Eng Tee. With a budget of 150 million yuan (S$30 million), the remake is expected to feature more elaborate Peranakan settings and costumes than before.

Bees rank highly in the affections of gardeners, right up there with birds, butterflies and hedgehogs. Bees are also unique among insects in their dependence on flowers –more or less everything needed to fuel adult bees and to grow new, young bees comes from pollen and nectar. So, not surprisingly, the quantities and qualities of food for bees provided by different flowers have been the subject of exhaustive research. So much so that you could be forgiven for thinking that there’s nothing left to discover.
I’ve long maintained that bulbs can be brilliant for beginner, container and urban gardeners (of which I am all three): throw most tulips, muscari, daffs [daffs are narcissi, so I've gone with common name] , and Iris reticulata in pots with good enough compost and they will be alright. But the woodland balcony I’ve been nurturing for just over a year poses the conundrum of part-shade, and which spring flowers will bloom from under it; not to mention the daily battles with squirrels.
