Plants - Tropical and Sub-Tropical Plants (and Trees)
There are a wide range of rare exotic tropical and sub-tropical plants and trees available for careful use in UK gardens: citrus trees, bougainvillea, tropical exotic plumeria (temple flowers), tropical mango plants, avocado trees, exotic litchi, kaffir limes, coffea arabica, citrus red lime, psidium, guava trees, olive trees, bauhinia, exotic punica pomegranate, fig, tea plant, loquat, exotic lychee trees, gloriosa, lantana, melia, monkey puzzle, norfolk island pine, dove tree and many many more exciting tropical exotics. We have grown many of the above from supermarket bought fruit!
Bananas - Bananas are great for that jungly tropical look in the garden, now becoming more popular, they can be successfully overwintered in the UK with a modicum of care. Gingers are a very exotic plant for the exotic garden. Hardier than perhaps first thought, but will need some winter protection to survive. Cannas - Cannas offer exotic large leaved foliage, together with spectacular flower spikes in many different colours. Palms - Whether you want to achieve that bahamian beach look or a trek in the rain forest, what could be better than a majestic palm, still something quite unusual to see in this country. Many palms are perfectly happy in our climate.
