You may think that a tropical garden in Britain is laughable – well after you settle down from belly laughing, I can tell you it is not an impossible feat. Although a little more time consuming and sensitive to conditions within the environment, a tropical garden can be the most rewarding style you could create, whisking you away to a sanctuary that will seem far, far away. You will need to combine rich colour and texture to conjure a peaceful and exotic garden mood.
Enrich the planting area with organic matter and mix with the native soil thoroughly. This will not only improve drainage to heavy soils but will nourish the existing site.
Tropical gardens are densely planted together, with flowers often designed in layers. You will start off by creating an upper canopy of taller trees and palms that will create shade and protection for lower growing varieties, along with providing an eye-catching and architectural structure to your borders.
You will then need to create a middle layer which will be made up of colourful shrubs and tall, stately perennials in various textures and shades to really emphasis the flamboyancy and variation within this style of garden.
The lower layer will consist of low growing varieties such as impatiens or low growing perennials and ferns.
If you have a pond or are thinking about installing one, what could be better than listening to the sound of water whilst relaxing in your tropical garden paradise? Embellish your patio areas with vintage terracotta pots, further emphasising the tropical ambience.
