    Hi there, a friend of mine lives out in the country and has a huge garden planted with tropical.

    What I liked was that he was able to plant out large and I mean large beds of Musa Basjoo and canna Musafolia he mulches with straw and manure for the winter.

    Tetrapanax was another plant he has in abundance, and of course Tree Ferns.

    Fatsia types could be another filler.

    When those are established you could then position some real feature plants.

    I’m in Cornwall this week and have seen huge Gunnera and Bamboo growing along a stream at Penberth see attached pic

    Knifophia Northiae another option for big filler and evergreen interest.

    Good luck👍
