Default Hello from Belgium!

I've done some jungle gardening before but I recently moved to a new house with small garden after having lived a few years in the city without one.

We checked out some projects and opted for a jungle garden with bananas, palms, tree ferns etc...

Spring is almost here so I'm starting with my sowings to get a reasonable headstart.

I looove banana plants, so I bought 3 species to experiment. My first mail order arrived yesterday, so I'm checking the sowing instructions for Musa sikkimensis, Musa velutina and Ensete glaucum.

My garden is quite small 10x10m, orientated full south and reasonably secluded so that I have a good micro climate.

Thanks for your warm welcome.

I've put my seeds on water this morning, didn't find a file to scratch them though, I hope it won't be too much of a problem lol
