I love my Tropicals! My yarden is filled with gingers and Philos and Taros... oh MY! Joseph invited me to join this group and i cant wait to see and hear about other tropical gardens! However I am SURE i will have many JEALOUS moments when the gardeners from south Florida and Austrailia and Hawaii start showing us their wonderful pics! Do You want us to post pics in here or just leave them on our individual pages?

Thanks Joseph!  I love your banana plant & hibiscus.  Do you move the tropicals inside during the winter?  I can't imagine they would survive a NE winter.  :  )

Hi All!  I live in South Florida and have been working on my tropical garden for 11 years.  This photo was taken yesterday, and I've uploaded several more on my garden page.  Everything is blooming, love seeing the fruits of my labor.  Enjoy!

"It's either sand or hard pan from being walked on by cows for 50+ years. There is an old pile of cow poo to til in.  It was pasture for our milk cows & beef."

"2 days before new moon plant above ground growers. From full to smaller plant root crops and transplant. They won't grow up they might rot before they germinate."

"Keryn I wish I made that much money then I could quit worrying about things that need to get paid. I have to have a huge sale with all the junk at the farm and more plants from here. Everything there is dead from no water for the past 2 years."
