Island Blooms... If you've been fortunate enough to escape to the island of Hawaii, then you'll instantly recognize the gorgeous plumeria flower. If you've ever wanted to bring a little of that island beauty to your garden, then don't miss the seminar that's happening at Rogers Garden in Newport Beach, this Saturday, August 18th, 2007. Members of the South Coast Plumeria Society will be discussing everything about growing plumerias, including how to grow them in containers (perfect for those who don't have a yard) as well as soil needs, water and fertilizer requirements, and even what varieties grow best in our area. The seminar will start at 9:00am. See more info and directions here.
