Hi guys. I would love some advice.
I have a very tiny garden bed in my backyard ( approx 60cm from the neighbour fence ) and I would love to create a sort of tropical look that can also work as hedge.
I was thinking of Golden Cane Palms as they look gorgeous when small... my concern is the small garden bed space an issue in the future ? OR would you recommend anything else ?

I had milar issue. A small space, wanting to create tropical area whilst also screening out neighbours. I used a clumping bamboo. There are many on the market. Make sure they're of the clumping (non-invasive variety) or you'll have bamboo growing out of control. One very popular variety is slender weavers (Bambusa textilis var. gracilis) has thin, tall and straight culms that form an attractive clump. Fast growing, it's ideal if you want a privacy screen or hedge.
I bought Gold Stripe which is ideal for very narrow spaces. I panted it along fence line in 30cm wide space. Another one I bought which requires more space as it has a lot of growth at lower end is Alphonse Karr.
Go online and check out clumping (non-invasive) varieties. They grow very quickly and easy to maintain. While screening out neighbours and giving tropical feel to space.
Hope this helps.
