Plumeria Flowers In Chicago

My Story

My name is Bob Walsh. I live in Chicago, USA, which is plant hardiness zone 5a. Gardening can be a challenge here as the weather can change from one hour to the next.

I have been gardening for more than 20 years both indoors and outdoors. What started out as a hobby soon turned into a passion for organically grown vegetables and tropical plants.

The past 10-plus years I included plumerias, frangipani, in my plant collection. 

I began experimenting with different growing mixes, fertilizers, foliar feeding techniques, soil additives, grow lights and more for growing plumerias, both indoors and outdoors, here in plant hardiness zone 5a, which resulted in the publication of my step-by-step plumeria care book How To Grow Plumeria - Frangipani Anytime Anywhere!.

Happy Growing,

Bob Walsh
