Why not bring a bit of the tropics to your home and have a go at growing your own tropical plants. Have a look at our exotics growing guide for more handy hints and tips.
Our Gardening Angel has 3 of our Rain & Drain Exotics Planters set up in our polytunnel. He is currently growing Echium wildpretii also known as Tower of jewels, Rainbow Chilli Plant and a Lemon Pelargonium.
I am particularly looking forward to see the 6ft tall spike flower which will develop on the Echium wildpretii.
The Lemon Pelargonium has which has a lovely lemon scent to its folliage and we will soon be taking cuttings from this plant soon and putting these into our Hydropod Cuttings Propagator.
