I cant even imagine how good your yard is going to look this year! Your yard gets 10x more tropical every year and it is getting a pretty good head start this year!
Thanks for sharing!

Should be cool to see how your yard looks! I didnt think that your yard looked cluttered at all, but I definitely understand wanting a bit of a more organized look.
I'm changing mine a little bit too. Actually I think Im going to make mine a bit more cluttered. The Ice Cream banana and saba are only going to be about 5 feet apart from each other so Im hoping they make a nice tropical canopy overhead by the end of the summer. I cant wait to get these plants in the ground again. Forecast is good enough to plant, but its way to risky to plant tropicals this early!

It really is early isn't it!

Thats why I didn't plant any thing out of the pots just yet....
leaving my Bananas-etc inside while it is in the upper 50s
to low 60s and highs well into the 80s would be a sin!
