Subtropical plant ideas needed please
I live in the valleys in South Wales. I have a sloping, south facing garden that currently holds a large shed near the house, a chicken coop & run next to it (going away from the house) and a 4mx 3m polytunnel at the bottom running east to west. The garden is around 8m x 10m.
I want to run a path from some decking next to the house down to the polytunnel that snakes through the garden. I'd like the garden to give the impression that you are walking through a subtropical area.
I am looking at plants that I can use for this effect. I'm not bothered about flowers (I'm a veg man and have a wildflower front garden) but equally I'm not opposed to them either.

Any help would be appreciated.
