Hi guys, thanks for accepting me....Advice needed!!

... into it though because it is dense clay. Lost one due to ring barking by a muntjac; lesson learned! For quick tropical look for me a blue columned bamboo worked well.

Fatsia, I have 3 varietes. Cordyline, any you can grow. Dicksonia Antarctica, a must. Plants I would not be with out. Acacia ...
