Hi guys, i enjoy aroids and was wondering which species are hardy enough to grow in a typical uk garden. Can they only be kept in pots or are there any that can be left alone all year? I especially like Arisaema's i have a dracunculus vulgaris doing great on my windowsill but as soon as it flowers it will be going straight outside! Anyway im a bit of a newbie with aroids so any info would be great :)
I have a south facing garden that will receive 7-8 hours ( about 09:00 ~ 17:00 ) of direct sun during the growing season. But a building sitting in front of my house will create shade during the coldest months ( can get as low as -17c at night, with day temperature stays below freezing sometimes ) in winter. Wind is often not a problem as the strongest winds are from the north, and my house will create good protection. I have read Carl Mazur's blog (zone6b.wordpress.com), and planning to build something similar. I would mulch my bog with pine needles, but worried about been frozen solid for weeks because of the annual shade. I'm planning to grow all the temperate Drosera, Sarracenia and of course, VFTs. I was wondering if anyone has similar growing condition and would love to hear any suggestions.
