Your eight 'Desert Island Discs' plants

Like the Desert Island Discs programme - but with plants image

Which eight plants would you choose for your Paradise Island - all things being equal - take it as read that you have perfect growing conditions - and they don't have to be practical edible plants either, unless you want them to be.

And as with the radio programme, you can choose one book to take with you too...

    I will start with: Lupins, Delphiniums, Dahlias and Cannas. Picking only four more may prove too difficult.

    Great thread Dove.

    I'm assuming there are coconuts already, to hang the hammock on. I wouldn't have any grasses for the snakes to hide in. Other than pansyfaces list, I would add in papaya and breadfruit, and even the much maligned durian fruit. It's ok in the fresh air.
