Back on the 4th of June, blog entry "Totally Tropical", the Tropical bed was planted out. The photo above shows how well it developed over the last 5 months. It is now time for the bed to be cleared out ready for the winter display to be planted and the frost tender, less hardy plants to be placed into the greenhouse.
It is a tradition that the gardeners have their annual team photo in front of this border just before it is ripped out. Joe, far right, has joined the team recently with Lucy on her honeymoon, and Mick awaiting a new knee, missing.
