Compost

Louise, a wormery may suit you for kitchen waste; not so suitable for garden waste.

As to making ones own compost; yes of course, but even a keen compost maker like myself cannot make 500 litres to fill a new veg bed with growing medium

Wow, Sarah, am speechless; what an amazing place. As you say, you are limited to plants that don't have very deep roots. Have you done a soil test yet to find out the ph?

I will try to keep 'bumping ' this thread so that other, wiser heads can help

Lulu, does it ever stop flowering? With most plants, one prunes after the the flowering. I assume that it does have a dormant period, though I don't think it does in places like Barbados.

Have just looked it up in an American plant encyclopedia and all it says is that if damaged by frost, cut back hard and it will respond well.

Give them a mulch of well rotted manure or leaf mold.

Sorry cannot help more
