Hey gardening fanatics! I’m back from a wonderful trip to Egypt with my best pal, Kelly. She absolutely loves Egypt, and was enthusiastic to teach me about all the plants the “Gift of the Nile” has to offer.
One such plant is the King Tut Papyrus, named after the Egyptian king Tutankhamun, who ruled from 1332 to 1323 BCE. This plant grows from 4 to 5 feet, and its spread is also 4 to 5 feet. It requires full sun to partial shade, so make sure it’s in a sunny place!
Other than the plants and gardens, Kelly and I checked out some of Egypt’s famous landmarks, including the Great Sphinx, and the Pyramid of Giza.
We also had a ton of fun in Cairo, especially in the markets, but Kelly was more interested in the coffee shops. Different strokes, I guess.
