Jeff’s Flower-Filled Patio Garden – Bagicha Bazaar



I’m Jeff Cecil. My wife and I live in Cypress, California. I started gardening about 20 years ago. Here are some current photos of spring plants and flowers. I have very good luck with hydrangeas and staghorn ferns. I also grow bromeliads, tillendsias, spanish moss, succulents, nasturtiums, senesio, and a few others. The challenge for me is managing the space. Our small patio garden brings us so much joy and beauty. I hope you enjoy our photos!
