Maintenance Activities For This Garden:

  • Main Weeds: Cane Grass, choking, creeping and climbing weeds
    • Eradicate cane grass as close to the base as possible using a Kama and pickax out if accessible
    • Use a Kama to cut the climbers and the chokers at the plant base. This will kill the vine without harming the plant it is around.
    • Remove all creeping weeds from around the whole garden beds.
  • Identification and Labeling:
    • Date the tree with date it was transplanted (only babies so we can see the growth process)
  • Borders & Maintenance:
    • Keeping the cliff borders free of weeds.
    • Weed whack the area of large grasses to keep walkways low and clear
    • Dump fresh soil around Kava plants to keep roots from being exposed to sun
    • Keep Cane Grass behind Kahuna low with long saw tool.
  • Harvesting:
    • Harvesting the Bamboo every 3-4 months promotes budding
    • Use Bush Trimmer to trim bamboo leaves and keep shaped, promotes taller bamboo shoots
    • Harvest Pineapples when they smell sweet and are Gold in color or Deep Purple (White Pineapples), just snap off with hands wearing gloves
    • Remove pineapples after harvesting and replace with new transplants
    • Please do not harvest the Kava root unless the Director asks.
