The Rest of the Garden

Life Beyond Gingers

There is more to life in the Ginger Garden than Zingiberales. There are so many of them I can’t squeeze them into my small piece of the world. Since most my garden is shady, I have to limit myself to what will grow in anything from deep shade to only four hours of fierce afternoon sun. There are Australian Violets here as well as Bromeliads. Ivies and Clivias do well here too. There is even a Plumeria enjoying one of the few sunny spots in garden.

Take a look and hopefully you’ll come away with more information than when you came in.
