Exotic Style Gardens
I am fortunate to have visited many exotic gardens on my travels, and strongly believe there is a lot to be learnt from this exhilarating form of gardening. These days we have a vast range of plants available to us that lend wonderful foliage texture and spectacular flowers equal to the splendour of those plants found in the tropics.
Whilst many from the old school of gardening in the UK do not accept these plants as part of traditional design, I am very passionate about integrating them into various scheme where possible. Selected carefully, they provide a real 'wow' factor, also lending themselves well to a contemporary style garden.
The term 'exotic' plants cover any plants very different to our own native flora, though interestingly they often originate in climates not so different to our own. Think along the lines of Rhododendrons from the Himalaya, and the Olive, native to the Mediterranean.
