It's a jungle in there! Man creates exotic paradise garden with banana plants and palm trees… in his backyard in LEEDS
Nick Wilson, 57, has spent 20 years creating this jungle garden, complete with tropical plants connected by timber walkways and ponds filled with koi carp, at his home in Leeds, Yorkshire.
Their success depends largely upon combining interesting foliage textures and playing one shade of green off another. This design beautifully partners Japanese forest grass (Hakonechloa macra 'Aureola') with assorted hostas, astilbes and ferns. The result is a soothing medley that will thrive in partial shade, in average to moist soil, in zones 5 to 8. - Glenna Partridge Garden Design
