TROPICAL GARDEN

Even if you have a small yard or only a balcony, you may still design a tropical garden. The following instructions will show you how to create a jungle in your home if, like me, you frequently day-dream about being in a tropical rainforest.

Diverse leaf textures and colours are needed to create a peaceful, exotic garden atmosphere. It will come together with the help of big, bold greenery, expensive flowers, and decorations. For the greatest results, combine plants with diverse leaf types together and use variegated foliage to break up green compositions.

Dig a lot of compost or well-rotted manure into the soil to keep your tropical plants looking their best. By keeping the soil moist, organic materials will keep your large-leafed plants healthy. In the spring and summer, compost or cow dung is a great addition to the garden.

To keep plant roots cool and preserve moisture, mulch the area surrounding the plants with composted leaves, lucerne hay, or pea straw, topping up as necessary. Tropical plants require water, and I've found that my plants enjoy it if I have a hose with a mister on the spray gun.
