What a beautiful yard. I thought Dave's Colocasia was huge. That one is absolutely amazing.

Wow, that looks really impressive! Thanks for sharing. Kind of reminds me of a botanical garden in Italy for some reason. And I was looking at some of your other youtube videos and Im inspired to grow a Musa Saba now!
Thanks for sharing!!

Thanks for posting the pictures and video of your friends amazing garden...it is beautiful to look at but it must be a tremendous amount of work in moving those huge pots around at end of season?? Great to see. Ross.

thanks Alex and Rosco.

Rosco they do not bring the pots in- they get them wholesale and sometimes they crack- oh well.. a beautiful price to pay

Be Still My Heart...another tropical splendor in subtropical zone 7. You and Dave are giving me ideas...BIG and expensive ideas. I am in trouble. So is my DH who does all the seasonal hauling in and out of the house.
