Congratulations!! Your garden is dramatic and amazing! What´s your range temperatures in winter?

Mau


So far the coldest was -20.5 degrees.
But this is extreme. On average -12-14 degrees used to be the coldest.
Many plants in the winter, and some, I defend my emergency heat is applied.

Love your garden Laszlo its a credit to you that you can grow that range of plants with those minimum temps.
The Fatsia polycarpa looks good I have never seen such large leaves and I am guessing the Cycas revoluta must get some heavy protection through winter?
The walkway is fab its nice to get a different of your garden I bet it gets windy up there though. :D

An exceptional garden considering how cold it can get in Winter. I love your Fatsia Polycarpa. Is the plant from seed that you brought back from your Taiwan trip? I suppose that hot summer you have just endured has helped ripen growth there.

Fantastically lush. I liked the living moss on driftwood. A detail I cant do here in California- at least my part of.

No, these are not Fatsia seed. I brought about 20 centimeters in. The seeds have already hatched, but they are still only about 2 cm.

You also do you like the mossy, fern garden?
I also really like the wide variety of ferns and moss.

Thank you very much. I try to collect a wide variety of ferns, really like them.
I want a foil tent, which grow well.
