Private gardens to visit on Big Island?

susi_so_calif(USDA10/Sunset24)August 2, 2003


I'm going to the Big Island in October, looking for plant places to visit. Any suggestions? We'll be staying near Hilo. I'm especially interested in private gardens that we could visit.

In Captain Cook, Kona, Hawaii there is the rather unique Greenwell Ethnobotanical Garden that features both native plants and trees and those introduced by the Polynesians. It takes some walking to see it, but imo it is worth the effort.

See, all the more reason for the Islanders to get their gardens on that garden museum - it could be a one stop shopping for places to see.

I'm going to get over to the Islands at least once in my lifetime.
