Loved the video Karl. The amount of top notch palms in your back garden is unreal. Love the bamboos as well. Seeing the videos is far better than photos as I now have a real grasp of your garden layout and scale.

Many thanks for your kind comments!!, I don't think I could of picked a worse day to video a garden with the wind yesterday!, I will make a better one once I've tweaked a few area's :) , it was really only a tester as down the bottom of the garden where shed is i'm planning to have a block built structure inc a small greenhouse area, also the paths are not quite to my liking yet as even though I like the jungle look I don't like an untidy garden. karl.

Because the day was so nice we had some family round for a bite to eat!, anyway for anyone interested I took a short video of the garden at night & you cant tell but the grass has been cut!, it's a bit darker down the back but does get a bit better as I come into light, not really close up of plants but to see the difference of a nightime. thanks karl.

Great Vid Karl icon_thumleft
Your photos really haven't given your garden justice, don't mean they were bad photos lol, but on video you get a much better feel of the garden, the size and sheer quantity of palms you have.

Also Love the gravel paths, my gardens not big enough for winding paths but it looks great.

Well done Karl on creating a wonderful and inspiring garden. I've really enjoyed wandering through it by video. I put it on the big screen for my partner to see using Apple TV and it looks right good by day and by dusk. I've not seen anything like it in the UK, which was was not under glass (although, I haven't been into palms, bamboos or yuccas etc for very long). Anyway, all the best with your continued passion and creativity, and I look forward to both seeing and hearing of your garden again.

Super garden and vid, Karl icon_cheers

You've shown just how tropical a look can be achieved in an area that can have very low temperatures in the depth of winter.

Real inspiration icon_salut

Many thanks all!!, I wont subject anyone to another one till it's matured some more :lol: , although I may sneak a sly one in once my tree ferns have unfolded, one thing I will add is that to get specimen's the size I have already has blew a hole in over 20k in less than 3years!!, hence me always being in the doghouse!!, not to mention the endless skip's etc. karl.

Exactly what I was thinking kris!
Karl your garden looks completely different to how I had pictured it in my mind. Videos definitely show a garden in a better way than just photos icon_thumleft
Your garden looks great mate!! icon_cheers
