Default Newbie from the Netherlands (zone 8).

Hello everyone,
I am a new member from the Netherlands and probably like all of you completely mad about banana's, especially those that have some kind of winter-hardyness.
Browsing a little through this forum makes me agree with Erland very much, it's a very professional as well as a kind forum. Also a vary nice PHP structure and easy to oversee, not as chaotic as some other forums are.
I am also (just like Erland) a member of the Gardenweb-Bananaforum (and will continue to be active there as well) but hope to be able to learn a lot here.
Thanks,
Regards,
Remko.

Hi everybody and thanks for the weloming words!
I'm active in cool tropical gardening for about 6 years now and have quite a collection already, bananas (ofcourse), palms, gingers, ferns, aroids, you name it. The bananaspecies I currently have are:
Musa: basjoo, sikkimensis, itinerans, itinerans 'Gigantea', balbisiana, paradisiaca, zebrina, velutina, ornata, cheesmani, nagensium (probably also a cheesmani);
Ensete: ventricosum, ventricosum 'Maurelii', glaucum and superbum;
and Musella lasiocarpa. Overwintering those can sometimes be troublesome because I don't have a space under my house like some of you guys in the U.S. have...
I also have a collection of ferns, I love the combination of ferns and broad-leaved plants like Musa's.
