Stuck on Kew

Kew has a large fairly permanent display of bromeliads which has really settled in now and looks very lush.

I like broms but don't have any space for them and so have always had to admire from a-far. You can not go into a garden centre without seeing little displays of tillandsia, these are much bigger, and at this time of year are just getting into flower.

Then if you have a few plants to get rid of how about a tillandsia column.

I am pleased they have decided to leave these alone as in the past they have tended to move them and only use them as a temporary display.  It is just a shame there are not more hardy ones as it would be great to have some scattered in among the spikies.


  1. Those brom's are great! What a terrific place that is. I would be walking around with my mouth open the whole time. :)

  2. It is a great place to have on my doorstep. If only they would stop constantly digging the displays up. Thankfully this one has been left alone for a while now.
