‘PlanTeenager’ Aljon Mendoza gives us a tour around their family garden

More and more are getting obsessed with the beauty and therapeutic benefits of plants that even youngsters are flexing their green thumbs. Call them ‘PlanTeenagers!” Of course, they learned from the more senior PlanTitos and PlanTitas. Take for instance former Pinoy Big Brother housemate Aljon Mendoza who turns gardening into family bonding time. The young actor gives us a tour around their family garden in this episode of Kapamilya Chat.

Leading us to the garden area is a glorious pathway adorned with beautiful rocks. The path, and actually the entire garden, is a DIY project of the family especially Aljon’s brother and his nephews and nieces. It has been less than a year since they started gardening.

To make the garden more cozy and inviting, they created a neat landscape of lawn and decorative rocks. Keeping the whole space vivid are varieties of flowering plants like roses and bougainvillea in the romantic shades of red and pink, and golden shower trees that add dramatic summer vibes Aljon said his mom likes flowers a lot.

There’s also a fascinating display of hanging plants and minimalist arrangements on racks. Overall, the Mendoza garden exudes a cozy ambience and it can also transform into a multi-purpose haven perfect for outdoor dinner and barbecue nights!
