My name is Bob Walsh and I recently joined the forum.
I live in Chicago, USA, which is plant hardiness zone 5. Gardening can
be a challenge here as the weather can change from one hour to the
I have been gardening for more than 20 years both indoors and outdoors.
What started out as a hobby soon turned into a passion for organically
grown vegetables and tropical plants.
The past 10 years I included plumerias, frangipani, in my plant
collection. The first 2 years trying to grow them was a challenge and
very frustrating as I lost quite a few.
Then I began experimenting with different growing mixes, fertilizers,
foliar feeding techniques, and grow lights.
Now I enjoy growing plumerias year round. The summer months they spend
outside and during winter the smaller ones are under grow lights.
I'm very happy to have found this forum to learn from your gardening
experiences and share my own as well.
