Its been none stop in this household and as I normally spend alot of time alone, I am grabbing the chaos and confusion with both hands and joining in! So posts may be rather random during this summer!
The tropical garden is now planted, well it was planted a couple of weeks ago
Please note the new fence!
My banana plantation has gone from looking like this last year
to this, due to the severity of the last winter!
But at least its not dead.
The cordy flower is getting bigger and has gone from this
and it is soooooo pretty!
I was totally inspired by Chelsea flower show, so much so that K and I are off to Gardeners World live this week. Next year I am definitely going to Hampton Court!
Any way whilst at Chelsea I came up with an idea for the front bit of my house, bearing in mind its not really a garden, that would reflect my love of tropicals, please bear in mind its ongoing and I still need to get the benches moved......
So we go from this.....
I have a Maurelli, a bamboo type grass and Elephants Ear in pots
The window box has gone from this
I am thrilled as this is very much the colours I wanted.
I also found Coleus and have planted quite a few in the jungle plot, but I was surprised to find Coleus Kong
these apparently can grow to have leaves the size of your face, you couldn't get more jungle than that!!!!!
the large tree fern is not totally dead, we have 1 frond!!!
