    Hello i have some photos from my garden today

    Oraia Poli!

    Great pictures Dimitris, is that banana a Musa Basjoo? or something more exotic. I have often thought about a Pomegranate but never got around to it. Do you have any olive trees? or any more pictures of your garden?

    This is my friends garden (not mine), I hope it's ok to post on here, but it gives you an idea of what can be achieved in UK (being virtually sub-Arctic)

    It is so nice to be able to eat fruit off your own tree :lol:

    Actually despite UK's reputation as a cold country, here on the coast Musa basjoo and Musa sikkimensis grows well and does not need to be protected or covered. Quite a lot of gardeners in UK have a tropical theme in gardening, and quite a lot of people grow bananas with no cover in winter.

    Nothing in his garden is covered in the winter because the average absolute minimum in winter is about -2C, and typically a minimum temperature is about 3 or 4C so they are OK.

    Thats a nice olive tree in the picture I imagine that is 100+ years old?

    If you are surprised to see lots of tropical/sub-tropical plants in UK, visit: www.hardytropicals.co.uk (and forum), to see more.
