My little bit of northern paradise

Post by lee-ann » Wed Jul 06, 2011 9:30 pm

After the last two winters and many loses I nearly gave up on the tropicals .... but with encouragement I realised I could grow plants from seed to fill the gaps and BUY NEW PLANTS :lol: It's finally coming together hope you like :D

Your garden looks great lee-ann!

Well done.

I know how you feel about giving up. I must admit that I have chickened out slightly and gone for very hardy exotic lookalikes this year as I can't be bothered with the losses any more.

Scott the mammoths are growing slowly but surely.....
Tom to be honest the garden was neglected last year but I've got my butt in gear this year so hopefully it'll look great just in time for me to bring them back in for winter :lol:
Thanks for the encouragement guys :D

:lol: I wish my pup collection is growing slowly ...I will have my T-rex plantation one day .......but sadly the larger section will be a race track for my son's power chair :roll: with a small raised bed for a few catalpa tree's and the other patch has been promised to my larger agave's if they ever get planted :D

Looking lovely lee-ann. The garden looks great and there is a lot of interest. I would give those nanas and arundo a good soak in the last photo of the first set posted. They look thirsty!

:lol: they've certainly had a soaking during the last couple of days ... they've not been planted long so hopefully they'll look a bit healthier in a couple of weeks :D
