Cheers guys.

I like the fact that the photos make the garen a lot bigger than it is.

Most plants in the arid bed are in pots for quick removal come winter to the greenhouse. I lost my agaves last year so taking more care this year.

New pics of flowers that are out in my garden at the moment. The Tree lilies have really come on a lot this year reaching over 6 foot tall and smell gorgeous.

Oh gee,

That Passion Flower is awsome. I bought seed from Ebay then gave it away..shucks :( :(

If I dig deep enough I should find a pack in my seed tin. :lol: :lol:

Just ordered an electric seed prop so an early start to my seeds.

They are all nice flowers but the Passion flower.. :o))))

Cheers Kata and Adam for the comments.

The passion flower has got through the last two winters with no problems, very little die-back. In fact this year it has flowered better than ever and covered a much bigger area. A very easy hardy tropical! :)

Great stuff Kris!

All those pots must take some watering when it's hot and dry.
