BananaWelcome to my blog,

You want to transform your garden in a holiday resort or jungle with palm trees and bananas? Then you will find information here.

Many species tolerate frost and can be grown in the garden in colder climates, with or without winter protection.

You will also find information on houseplants, orchids, terrariums, hydroponics and gardening tips.

And if you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me.

Happy gardening.
