Just have to show you this.........

My very first ginger flower..........



isn't it beautiful......



would you like to see some more I've taken a million pics in case it doesn;t happen again!!!!!



Say goodbye to this



as its time to dig up and pop in the green house. I have to still move this



and this



and this



and this to fit in



In the greenhouse I have already chopped some back



I need to chop these back



then as you can see they are full of water I have to drain this out, otherwise it freezes and kills the tender bananas.



I have never over wintered so many before, I wonder how many will be dead before next year???



This banana at the bottom has gone balistic this year, I think it is because of all the rain we have had, but he seems quite happy at the mo. no need to cut him back just yet.

I do love the markings and colours of this Ensete Leaf



and to finish with, my favourite coloured flower

I think you should cover the whole garden with a huge gazebo and have one giant greenhouse :-) Your ginger lily is beautiful!

You have really worked hard with all these plants. I do love the ginger. You have such a garden full of everything it must keep you busy all summer long. I love that Ensete leaf also.

Wow Libby, that is incredible, what a gorgeous ginger flower. I'd never seen one before so thanks for sharing.

Having a jungle garden is quite a lot of work, I see, but worth it.

Have a great weekend!
