The Gardener

Lois has been a professional florist for 25 years and has used her talent in making her garden very different and interesting. She believes "While the creation of an interesting garden requires design and horticultural skills, a stylists eye is kneaded when adding the finishing touches" Her garden is a new garden and she is looking forward to the idea of entertaining visitors, in fact she phoned to tell me about her first booking and could hardly contain her excitement.

Balinese Gates
Bromeliads thrive under the cherry tree. There are about 250 recognized species of vriesea bromeliads, all native to Central and South America.
Vrieseas are Bromeliads, wonderful foliage plants in the sub-tropical garden, with striking markings, colours and textures.

'Tractor Seat Ligularia'. Huge kidney shaped leaves of deep green look fantastic on a mature plant. Hardy and easy to grow. Does best in a shady situation
A Balinese Pot
Vriesea are fairly typical bromeliads. They can be grown in stronger shade conditions than many other kinds of bromeliads, and their size varies from medium to fairly large. One interesting tidbit: the flowers of V. fosteriana smell like putrid fruit to attract the bats that pollinate the plant in the wild. Warmth is generally essential for vriesea to thrive.
