Today, we throw the spotlight on beneficial bugs. They care the good guys in your garden. How do you encourage more of them to hang around? Are you planting things that invite bad bugs? What's a gardener to do?
In our recurring egment on Hawaii's gardens and forests, we focus on an urban garden in our Honolulu. Foster Garden is on the National register of historic places. It covers some 14 acres and was founded in the 1850’s.
We were there at the gardens this past Arbor Day to chat with Foster Garden’s Director Joshlyn Sand about what's in store for this historic city garden going forward.
People gravitate to Andrew Binkley’s “Stone Cloud” at Foster Garden. Part of the Honolulu Biennial, it is big, and looks quite heavy, hovering over the heads of those who wander by. HPR’s Noe Tanigawa caught up with Binkley there in the Garden to find out what he had in mind.
