Revisiting Tropical Edibles Nursery in South Kona, I found the same two-plant-knowledgeable women keeping local gardeners and farmers supplied with edible plants. Maggie and Momi continue to supply local growers with fruit trees, vegetable starts, herbs and flowering plants all that produce food.

Spring rains mean it is time to fertilize

This weekend marks the last two days of winter and Monday is officially the first day of spring. It has been a dry winter for many parts of the island, but now some areas are beginning to get a bit of spring rain. This makes it difficult to make general recommendations that apply to all. Parts of the windward side received enough precipitation to remove nutrients like nitrogen and actual topsoil as well. West Hawaii received much less, but with our excessively porous rocky areas, even an inch of rain can leach important elements essential to plant growth.
