Here at EPO we understand that any hobby can get expensive and there is always a point where you might have to get a little cost conscious. This is just the same in the gardening world, and it’s easy to get carried away (Which is one of the sheer joys of gardening we think!) so we have found all kinds of cheap tropical plants for sale online that you can buy in the UK and I think some of our suppliers even offer worldwide postage with the right documents. Our site points to some the best suppliers of tropical plants in the UK, and each place usually carries a great stock level and great choice of plants.
We try and list just as many cheap tropical plants and special offers as we can, as well some of the other plants that just don’t get discounted much too. Recently we had a great offer of loads on seeds – growing from seed is by far the cheapest way to buy tropical plants and if you have a little more time and love to put in, the rewards can be quite amazing.
One plant that is always great value is the humble Musa Basjoo (pictured on right)- a cheap plant to buy, especially as a pup, that just keeps on growing year on year, and never seems to stop.
Other cheap and great tropical plants to buy would be one of the many canna plants – easily grow from tubers or seeds, and provide a cheap, bulky and colourful backdrop to your tropical garden. Have a look at some of our top Cannas Plants here.
The joy of having a tropical garden is that there are no hard and fast rules to what constitutes ‘tropical’, so just get in the garden and plant what you like – the bigger and bolder the better!
