Bringing the Aromas of Hawaii to your Home

Welcome To Our May Newsletter

Having just spent a very pleasant week in Skiathos, I can tell you that we are not the only ones to have experienced a challenging spring. Clearly most of Europe has. And with our current spell of inclement weather, no doubt here to stay for a while, for once the British Isles is feeling just like the Med!

With the changeable temperatures, coupled with the lighter days and some good spells of sunshine, I've certainly seen a noticeable change in most of our Plumeria, both in and out of the Nursery. It may not seem much warmer, but believe me a few degrees can make all the difference to a Plumeria and they certainly sense it. A daily misting of your Plumerias growth tips and leaves with some of our Leafdew Plumeria Mist is a great way to help them get 'greened up' and refreshed. But despite this optimism, do remember to still keep your Plumeria away from any windows or panes of glass overnight, as temperatures can still drop very low and you don't want all the benefits of a day in the sun to be ruined by a frosty night

Now sunshine is lovely and you should always strive to get your Plumeria into as much of it as you can. But, when doing this inside, via a window or conservatory, it is essential that the sunlight is not allowed to become too intense and burn the leaves or cause your Plumeria to wilt. Whilst it may seem unlikely, it can easily happen. If it does, just remove your Plumeria to a shaded spot and if wilted, water thoroughly with some added SuperThrive and then leave alone to recover naturally. Unfortunately, burnt or scorched leaves are generally beyond repair. So just carefully remove any burnt bits and try not to worry about them, as after all they will soon drop to make way for new ones

Now as we plunge headlong into the main growing season, the age old question of 'Feeds & Fertilisers' raises its head. Opinions do vary on this as to how much, how often and to what extent. I really don't think there is any standard answer, it purely depends on your own preference, experiences and how confident you are. From a very simplistic point of view, if you're not 100% sure about what you are doing then don't do it! Okay, your flowers may take little longer and may not be as big or abundant as others, but at least your plant will be safe. Overuse of feeds can be very detrimental and cause all manner of problems. So, if you're not sure or just want that added peace of mind, do as we do and use our tried and trusted combination of SuperThrive, Leafdew Plumeria Mist and Hawaiian Super Bloomer and you won't go far wrong

For the more adventurous of you, the world of feeds & fertilizers does colorfully beckons, with as you may expect incredible promises of bigger, better and longer lasting blooms. In truth if you know what you are doing it's pretty straightforward and just a case of using certain types of feeds at certain times of years. SuperThrive really is an excellent all year supplement as it promotes root growth, strengthens the core and generates leaf growth, which in turn increases light absorption. Then as summer approaches, our Hawaiian Super Bloomer with its high, balanced phosphate levels is the perfect feed to really give your Plumeria a boost and get those flower buds going. Next month I'll expand on this further, so for now just concentrate on getting your Plumeria fully awake and into strong leaf

So with spring here and summer quickly approaching, it really is the perfect time to make that final choice and get your order placed, so your new Plumeria can fully benefit from the sunny days to come. Our catalogues offer a fantastic selection to choose from, including all the Supplies you will need as well as all our fantastic Plumeria Plants, any of which make a wonderful feature in any home and a stunning addition to any collection. Go on treat yourself, start the summer early !!!

Yours Sincerely

Welcome To Our

Plumeria Nursery & Clinic

Ideal For Getting Plumeria Ready For Life In The UK

We started our nursery over 10 years ago, having been captivated by the beauty of the plumeria we'd seen on our travels

Since then our nursery and Plumeria Clinic have gone from strength to strength and allowed us, to develop and refine the perfect set of care techniques and products to ensure success in the UK

Our custom climate control system allows us to import Plumeria of all sizes from our sister nurseries abroad and then re-establish and grow them strongly in their natural tropical environment, whilst gradually getting them used to our cooler UK conditions

These checks really ensure that all our plumeria are fully acclimatised and established before being released for online sale and means they arrive with you in perfect health and fully conditioned for life within your care

Likewise, our Plumeria Clinic is the ideal place to take any worries or concerns you may have about your own plumeria. As it offers simple, practical, UK relevant advice, based on our own many years of experience
