 Aloha and welcome to The British Gardener's website. Firstly, thank you for taking the time to visit this site and I hope you enjoy what has been created.  This site was originally created as a blog to share my own personal horticultural opinions on all things to do with gardening and to encourage others to discover the joys (or sorrows) of working with mother nature. Since its creation, it has evolved to include a Tropical Plant Encyclopedia to catalogue all the plants found growing around a landscape that I manage for the Four Seasons Resort, Lana'i, Hawaii.  I have also created a Plant Map (listed on the left side column) with clickable icons to located the 'larger' plants found growing around the property.  Also, linked to each entry in the encyclopedia are photos of each plant showing some of the characteristics to help you identify the plants you'll find growing at the resort. Please bookmark this site or subscribe as new features and posts will be continuall
