What a beautiful start! I wish you all the best luck with your garden. (If you're from Hawai'i, I'd love to read just how different gardening is here!)

Welcome to this very fun, very addictive website.

Totally agree about being hooked on gardening and this website... I've read that hibiscus can also grow in this location too. We'll soon see.

You can grow tropical hibiscus and even plumeria if you have a place to keep them during the winter. They can keep growing in a greenhouse, or you can move them to a place where it doesn't go below about 50 degrees.
