Julie can you recommend some Hardy tropical looking plants that are easy to maintain both evergreen and deciduous, I got an occasional customer who has finally decided she wants tropical 🍹 garden I've got a few thoughts but you are an expert on this field of gardens

#trachycarpus-fortunei is the obvious palm for easy care, #euphorbia-mellifera (once it gets going, it's fabulous) #fatsia-japonica #chamaerops-humilis some of the cannas are hardy.... #tropicanna seems to be. Bamboo... #fargesia are clumpers and not spreaders, ferns always look good especially the #ostrichfern #red-hot-poker... I use #acanthus-mollis and #acanthus-spinosus #dahlia-bishop-of-llandoff #alstromeria-indian-summer and good old #asiatic-lily Will that do for starters? @carolgs

How could I forget helenium short and sassy although it doesn't stay true to its name, mine is a monster plant this year @carolgs

And phormiums @carolgs Mine is hidden from view from where I sit 😂 if you're after a nice big leaf then #tetrapanax is stunning but would need planting out just after the last frosts to give it a chance to get its roots down nicely for the first year and maybe a bit of protection for its first winter but after that, it will romp away and not need winter protection

Afternoon Bestie @vec pollen beetles are they little black things that I keep finding in most of my flowers? Are they harmful or not? 😘

No they're not harmful just very annoying as they make me itchy if they land on me 😂 @jadojado29

I could squeeze you in the boot @clustyroen I'm surprised that all my kids still want to come, thought the 15 and 16 year old would think that a day out with mum at the beach was too boring 😁

It's the same with our 15 year old grandson, he doesn't spend so much time with us now, he has better things to do! We only see him for a few weeks a year as he lives abroad, but I think he does try! 😢😂
