We feature a lot of natives from the St. Croix, US Virgin Islands like Lignum Vitae, local Eugenias, and Ironwoods (Krugiodendron ferruem)

I would love to buy a variety of mango seeds you have available.  Do the ones you mentioned in the ad come true to seed?


I'd say skip the Foxfarm and do a granular application of oganic Espoma Holly Tone.  Foxfarms is bit hot and can burn plants.  If you decide to stick with fertigation method, you will want to check the TDS after mixing in Foxfarms. 

I love my chickens, except for the fact that they are free range and can cause some problems because of that.  They can be a bit mischievous lol.

I have been practicing JADAM for awhile now and happy with the results.  Essentially taking crop wastes and indigenous micro organisms and making various solutions.  I also was given tons of fish guts and made KNF fish amino acid (far superior to fish emulsion and hydrolysate IMO).

We have a composting toilet and have been making charcoal for years which gets mixed into the composting toilet with mulch and then ends up on our land 6 months later.

Now we are getting pulses of Sargassum seaweed.  I have found places along the shoreline where it collects and is loaded with earthworms.

These practices give a feeling of sovereignty when living on a small island with limited resources. There is so much more too.  People who live on large continental land masses have no idea how many valuable nutrient inputs just go to waste.


Hey Digigarden!

I loved all those Eugenia pics you were posting.  Very cool to know they are being utilized in DR for landscaping, I love them all and we have several of the same type here on St. Croix.  I do specialty landscaping and I am trying to get my customers to recognize the value in these species. 

As to your question, there is a Eugenia that grows here which looks almost identical to Floribunda, I believe that is what you have in your picture.  I think the variety is Eugenia procera.   

I will have more Floribunda seeds later in the year, around October/November. 

Take care everyone and thanks for your interest. 


Thank you for your interest.  The season is typically September to December.  I will inform you and the others who have expressed interest when they are ready again.   8)

Awesome trees you have for sale!

Could you share what type of pots those are and where you purchased them from?

Hi everyone, thanks for the positive feedback!

Unfortunately, I have decided not to ship Guavaberry seedlings due to problems with customs.  I need to remove them from soil to guarantee they make it there ok and I am concerned they would get too shocked from this.

I should have more seeds available in about a month and will make a new post when I do.

That's awesome! She would fit right in here in the Caribbean!

I ordered some plants from Satya and I have to say, I was so incredibly pleased with the entire exchange.  I highly recommend buying plants from this good, kind human!

My plants came well packaged, healthy, and my boxes were packed full of different species.  All are now very happy in their new home.

Thank you Satya!!!

Hey Mr. SXM!  Doing great thanks!

Seeds still available but the one tree I am sourcing them will probably only have fruit for another week.

Yes Guavaberry rum is being made by my wife, but I stopped drinking alcohol so now I just eat the fruits!  So good!

How would these do in the tropics?

Season's Greetings forum friends,

Tis' the season for Guavaberry in the Virgin Islands.  I have seed packs of 10 seeds for $10 (extras will be included).  This is the purple variety of Guavaberry.

Seeds will be place in moist vermiculite and shipped either first class mail ($6) or priority with tracking ($8) your choice. 

These take about 4 months to germinate but have a very high germination rate so be patient!

Be safe and merry this holiday season!  8)

My wife discovered that blending lemongrass with starfruit makes an excellent drink!  Strain, chill and enjoy anytime of the day. 

Try it out, I can assure you will not be disappointed.
