General:
Located on less than an acre, Spalding Garden in Honolulu was transformed in 1999 from a barren, dreary plot into a colorful explosion of perennials and an organic garden of fruits and vegetables. The owner has been interested in gardens from childhood in the 1920s on the island of Kaui where her father was the manager of the Makaweli Sugar Plantation. The owner gained extensive experience raising vegetables Diamond Head community garden for over seven years and visiting with Master Gardeners and volunteers at the Oahu Urban Garden Center. The owner has made refinements to the soil based on the soil analysis by the College of Tropical Agriculture at the University of Hawaii. some of the techniques she has employed in the garden include adding alkaline to the soil, mounding the soil in the vegetable beds, using lights to deter Japanese Beetles and using rain water only for her vegetables to avoid chemicals in city water.
The front porch dining area is embraced by fragrant lavender, hibiscus, lantana, gardenas, mandevilia, vinca, penta, plumbago and pakalana vine. The terrace in the back has views of the orchard of fig, avocado, mango, banana, papaya and citrus as welll as raised beds of asparagus, beans, beets, carrots, peas, collards, shard, spinach, parsley and okra.
The owner enjoys all the work that the garden requires including toting bags of compost, peat moss, pails of rain water, pruning, weeding, harvesting as well as arranging flowers and dining on her organic fruits and vegetables.
Persons associated with the garden include Steve Sawyer (former owner, n.d.).
