Here is my code:

\documentclass[12pt, border=0.5mm]{standalone}




\begin{tikzpicture}[x=1mm, y=1mm]       
        every axis/.append style={
            line width=0.2mm
        every tick/.style={
            line width=0.1mm,
        every tick label/.append style={

        axis on top,
        axis lines=middle,
        ymin=-14, ymax=45,
        xmin=-1, xmax=65,
        xtick={45, 50},
        extra x ticks={50},
        extra x tick labels={$x+h$},
        every extra x tick/.style={
            xticklabel style={yshift=0.6mm, xshift=1mm},
        \addplot[blue, name path=f, line width=0.3mm, line cap=butt, samples=500, domain=0:60] 
            {sin(sinh(ln(50*(0.25*x + 2))))*(0.25*x + 2) + 25};

        \path[name path=axis] (axis cs:0,0) -- (axis cs:50,0);

        \addplot [color=blue, fill=blue, fill opacity=0.1]
            fill between[of=f and axis, soft clip={domain=0:45}];
        \addplot [color=red, fill=red, fill opacity=0.2]
            fill between[of=f and axis, soft clip={domain=45:50}];

        \node[font=\fontsize{7}{8}\selectfont, anchor=west] at (axis cs:10, 10) {area $= A(x)$};
        \node[font=\fontsize{7}{8}\selectfont, anchor=west] at (axis cs:2, -7) {$A(x+h)-A(x)\approx f(x)\cdot h$};
        \node[blue, font=\fontsize{7}{8}\selectfont, anchor=north] at (axis cs:10, 42) {$y=f(x)$};
        \node[font=\fontsize{7}{8}\selectfont, anchor=west] at (axis cs:53, 22) {Excess};       
        \draw[line width=0.1mm, stealth-] (axis cs:50.5, 22) -- (axis cs:54.2, 22);                 
        \draw[line width=0.1mm, decorate, decoration={brace, amplitude=3pt, mirror}, yshift=-4.5mm] (axis cs:45, 0) -- (axis cs:50, 0) node [midway, font=\fontsize{7}{8}\selectfont, yshift=-3mm] {$h$};           
        \draw[line width=0.1mm] (axis cs:45,{sin(sinh(ln(50*(0.25*45 + 2))))*(0.25*45 + 2) + 25}) rectangle (axis cs:50,{sin(sinh(ln(50*(0.25*50 + 2))))*(0.25*50 + 2) + 25});

I would like to set ymin=-1 and at the same time avoid cropping and scaling of the plot as seen here:

Is there a way to do so?

    \begin{axis}[clip=no,...? – Henri Menke Jul 14 '16 at 13:34

    @HenriMenke clip=false. – Torbjørn T. Jul 14 '16 at 13:38

clip=false works like a charm!
