6/10 (Sat.) Practical Gardening (Host: Gavin Tsai)

YoYo English Club is going to have an outing to Fushan Botanical Garden (福山植物園) on 6/11 (Sun.); so, for the occasion, it should be fun to talk about a relevant topic on 6/10 (Sat.).

Repelling mosquitoes is a practical purpose of gardening. Let’s read this article firstly:

8 Plants That Repel Mosquitoes Naturally


Session I: Gardening in Daily Life
1. Have you ever tried or heard about mosquito-repelling plants? Please share your experiences or what you know about the plants.

2. Do you keep any plants in your home or office? Are there any practical advantages or just for making the place look more pleasant?

3. In a luxurious house, plants play important roles regarding Feng Shui (風水). What are the plants in the hall of your office or house? (Bamboo, Pine, Orchid…). What do the plants mean?


Session II: Tourist Attractions related to Gardening
4. Fushan Botanical Garden is a fairly popular tourist attraction in I-Lan (宜蘭); Do you visit a garden or a museum more often? Why?

5. Which other famous gardens in Taiwan have you been to? Please introduce what are their specialties. (Lin Family Garden 林家花園, Small Swiss Garden 清境小瑞士花園, Tianwei Highway Garden田尾公路花園)

6. Happy Farm has ever been an addictive game. How do you think of this kind of gardening?

Rain poured, but men not stopped. We had Gavin (Host), Kooper, Rock, Paul (newcomer), Jeffery, Danny, Julian and Vincent. The discussion was great, as usual. Many thanks to Gavin for hosting this good topic.
