Tropical Breeze is a Sydney tropical garden filled with a wide variety of unusual and rare tropical plants seldom seen in gardens here. Come and take a stroll through my garden and see the array of plants, collected in the tropics that are growing and thriving here. Where Crotons and Cordylines flourish in lightly shaded areas under the canopy and plants with strange sounding names such as Tabernaemontana, Mussaenda, Graptophyllum, Pseuderanthemum and Posoqueria grow.
In the Front Garden the Frangipanis are flowering beautifully........
As most of these Frangipanis were leaning over and blocking the pathways, we decided to straighten them to clear the pathway and not have them broken as people walked past. To do this, we had to dig deep around one side of the roots cutting through very thick roots. We then lifted one side and very carefully filled the hole under the plant on that side with soil.
