I hope no one minds my instrusion here. I am desperately trying to
study what sort of things I can get away with growing. In one month I
will be moving from somewhere incredibly warm and tropical to the
English southern coast (not the warmer Cornwell side, though. It is
apparently more of a patio than garden (I haven't seen it myself!), so
I am wondering if I can get away with filling it with potted plants
whose bases I could wrap warmly in winter. I've no idea, really, as I
can throw any corm, seed or living organism into my garden here and it
will grow. I have friends enough in England whose quaint little
English gardens I can enjoy and visit and want to have my patio/garden
full of things which will help me not to be so homesick. I hate to
leave my champaca trees behind, but I have to. Can anyone make
suggestions for plants who are looking tropical but are maybe hardy
enough to survive southern England? There will be NO room in the house
for any plants in the winter, alas, it is extremely tiny.....
Thank you in advance..
