HOME & GARDEN
Perk up any garden with coffee tips
Coffee and cacao plants not only make for great java and cocoa, but can also give a jolt to the garden. To learn how, join Skip Bittenbender, University of Hawaii specialist in coffee and cacao, and coffee scientist Shawn Steiman from 9 a.m. to noon tomorrow at the UH Urban Garden Center in Pearl City.
While there, explore the Boardwalk Garden and see how plants can beautify the landscape through colors, shapes and textures.
Steiman also will sign copies of his new book, "The Hawai'i Coffee Book: A Gourmet's Guide from Kona to Kaua'i," which offers profiles of Hawaii's coffees; listings of farms, tours, cafes, retailers and roasters on all five coffee-producing Hawaiian islands; as well as recipes, coffee appreciation tips and more.
The Oahu Master Gardeners welcome home gardeners to the Urban Garden on the second Saturday of each month. Bring questions with samples of your problem plants. Free tours are available; no reservations required. Bring hat, sunscreen and water. Visit www.ctahr.hawaii.edu/ougc or call 453-6050.
