@ Jackie Frost - am only going to grow from seed this year. Have various Musa on the go at the moment and in April Cosmos, Canna, Gunnera, Ginger Lilly, Colcasia and a few other hardy (ish) tropicals.
I moved into a new garden and had to buy lots of structural plants, wind breaks etc. I also planted an 80 metre wildlife hedge down the side of my house!
