Hi, my names Darren and I'm a plant-a-holic. Not much of a gardener but I'm giving it a go. Started a tropical style garden at the beginning of the year and have spent quite a bit of time looking around this forum for research so I thought I would join.

Hello. If you are a plant-a-holic already you are on the slippery slope. Tropicals have just increased your speed down that slope.

Photos please.

Sounds like you have the bug. What plants do you have?
Most wanted list - Any Young Trachycarpus and/or fern.

I am in Norwich too. Tropical gardening is highly addictive but rewarding.

I have some of the usual suspects such as Tetrapanex, Fatsia Japonica, Waggy and Trachycarpus, Canary Palm, Tithonia, Canna etc.

Will post some pics when I get them off the camera.

Thought I would finally post a couple of pics. Had to Photoshop out the wife sun bathing first as I didn't want to frighten anyone. Pics were taken summer 2019 so the garden was only a year old at that point. Also added a pic of the bar as every garden needs a bar for those hot, sweaty gardening weekends. :-)
