Re: Anyone get the Sahara dust dumping?

My car was covered this morning. It was a very stuffy day, felt like there was a storm brewing this afternoon.

Re: Pine tree/shrub to I'D please

I'll grow it on and see if it shapes up to be a decent christmas tree for the house in a few years..

Re: Is this a baby Cordyline

Thanks everyone. I hope it is a cordyline, if it's a pampas I'll chuck it! :lol:
Should have more of an idea later in the year I hope, it does look similar to the other photos. icon_salut

Re: Pine tree/shrub to I'D please

Grand Fir Abies grandis . Fast-growing, and eventually huge - one in Scotland is 64 metres tall (2nd tallest tree in the UK). So be careful where you plant it! Edit: here's one in Northumbs. (not quite so large, it's only 57 metres tall :lol: ): Wow! I hope it isn't that haha! There is a scotts pin...

Is this a baby Cordyline

I found this growing near where a large cordyline died a few years ago. could it be a rogue seed that managed to germinate, or is it some type of ornamental grass?!

cheers, Will

Pine tree/shrub to I'D please

Hi, I found this seeded in some shingle while weeding, any ideas what it could be? flat needles, slight pine smell when crushed. thanks

Re: Just a pointer

Didn't have a really hard frost here last night (around -1c) but even though I covered my T rex, a couple of its new leaves have gone limp!

Re: What makes a Cordyline 'trunk'?

It will trunk eventually, sounds like it's still a fairly young plant. The lower leaves will start to go brown and tatty and can be removed.
