Helping Neighbors Just Like You
Chloe and Jessica’s business truly embodies the spirit of Aloha. They care for their community by providing them with the materials and education needed for their neighbors to care for and live off of the land. Not only providing people with edible vegetables, etc. (food for the body) but also flowers and ornamentals (food for the soul). The time they take to care for these plants until they're ready to be delivered right to our door does not go unnoticed. All of their plants are extremely healthy and WELL worth the price. Every single plant I’ve ordered from them has excelled and produced greatly for my household. My roselle hibiscus in particular has made for lots of amazing conversation starters and drinks for my family. Our community is blessed to have Rosie’s Gardening helping it grow and blossom.
Kawailehua & Ohana
Mahalo sis Chloe of @rosiesgardnening for sharing and giving her mana'o and aloha of planting and growing. I had first seen her Instagram based on her posts of composting, soiling and seeding, becoming instantly drawn to her passion for nature and gardening. I reached out to her with my interest and she came straight to Waimea Valley bearing gifts of ni'oi, Hawaiian chili pepper, mai'a keiki, a beautiful baby banana, he'i, papaya, and so much more I could give and share with my neighbors, family and friends. It has been such a joy learning from her and eventually taking on the task of growing a garden of my own for family to enjoy as well. I pray her endeavors become ever exceeding and successful at the root, to a fruitful future and a bountiful harvest. I highly recommend all to follow @rosiesgardening and contact her with all your gardening needs for your ever growing plant life.
Much aloha, Kawailehua & Ohana
Aloha, I am writing this as both a review and mahalo to Rosie’s Gardening. It has always been my goal to grow my own garden and have it be able to sustain and nourish not just my ‘ohana, but to produce enough to share with friends and neighbors.
Rosie’s Gardening has helped me achieve this goal. My experience purchasing starters from them has been pleasant, positive, and plentiful! Their quality starts are not only grown with aloha but are also an affordable and fresh alternative to grocery imported produce! Saving money during this pandemic has meant a lot to a single mom like me. The experience of “growing our own” has also empowered my keiki to take pride in growing and consuming more healthy veggies. We are now on our second round of starts and I couldn’t be more satisfied! I look forward to continuing to learn and grow along with my garden and thank Rosie’s Gardening for providing me the tools and knowledge to do so.
Meke aloha ‘āina,
Rosie's Gardening is an absolute joy! When Chloe and Jess delivered plants to my doorstep (which is not easy to find), they brought healthy sprouts tailored to my container gardening needs, advice on how to best care for the plants, and even tips on how to keep the cycle going by collecting seeds. These folks helped make it possible for me to spice up my home cooking with fresh ingredients right in my front yard; it doesn't get better than that. I've made air-fried broccoli, collard greens, and summer rolls, not to mention all the chili peppers and herbs that I put into just about every meal these days. So delicious! The purple spinach is my new favorite veggie that is both stunning to look at and yummy to eat. Most of all, Rosie's Gardening is grown from truly kind people, and I am so grateful for the seeds they plant.
Mahalonui-- keep on growing!
This year I decided to start a veggie garden, so I called Chloe from Rosie’s Gardening. She came up with the plan for companion planting and drew up a diagram for me to follow. It was a great success! The next round I planted was just getting started when the chickens found my garden beds. Of course, I called Chloe again, and she came up with a great chicken proofing plan and it has worked like a dream! Until the bugs found my garden. Once again, Chloe to the rescue! She completely overhauled my garden, gave me great advice on organic pest control and my winter garden is thriving! I wish I had more room for more plants from Rosie’s Gardening. I think next spring I will be contacting Chloe again for some custom garden beds. When it comes to my veggie garden I always turn to Chloe for advice. She is amazing!
I have been a customer of Rosie’s Gardening since she opened and I am thrilled with the organic veggie and herb starts, the fruit trees I have purchased, the service, the advice and encouragement. Do yourself a favor and visit Rosiesgardening.com for superior service with tons and tons of Aloha!
A friend hosted pop up shop of local vendors at her home a few years ago. That is where I met Chloe and Jessica selling vegetable and floral plant starts! I was in awe of one of the plants and found myself buying several plants for my lei garden. I kept in touch with Chloe and got to create a birthday lei po`o for her to share my Aloha. She was starting her small business back then and I wanted to support her by adding more plants to my garden. She offered to deliver them and what I got were colorful, healthy flowers that I was able to nurture in my garden and use in my leis. Chloe and Jessica are a great team and I’m grateful to know them as they contribute to healthful lifestyles and practices into our community. Congratulations on rising to the next level of growing Rosie’s Gardening!

To know Chloe is to want her growing food for you. Before we met her, we'd buy from her farm stand and the attention to detail she applied to every aspect of what she does was something we often discussed. Some people have a natural gift, a very clear connection with the Earth herself, that tells them from deep within how to feed others. Chloe definitely has this gift, and it has been pure joy to watch her build this platform to share it with the world.

Chloe provides the community with beautiful and local plants. All flowers and plants are grown with love and the utmost care! I feel better getting starters from her knowing that she uses the best soil and care to tend to the keikis. Oh and did I mention her services include delivery?? Support local and buy sustainable! Thanks Chloe :)

Chloe Rose Ballard
Named after my Grandmother, Rosie's Gardening was inspired by my love for all things living, especially plants!
I enjoy providing food for our family and hope to inspire others to do the same.
There's nothing like getting your hands dirty and working with the land and spirit. It's the most rewarding part of my day.
Jessica's favorite part of the day is a nice iced (sometimes hot) coffee while taking a walk through the garden & nursery.
She speaks to the plants, and they talk back! Jess enjoys a nice meditation in the garden right before a day of transplanting to make sure only the best of her energy is passed on through the plants.
