Arundo donax

It would appear Arundo Donax likes Shropshire, I was looking to grow some around 10 years ago but eventually decided against it as I prefer something evergreen.

Conservatory replacement causing overwintering issues

Conservatory replacement causing overwintering issues

Funny how something that is perceived to be as simple as a conservatory is causing us some problems! You think you have problems listen to mine!

Phoenix canariensis_CIDP is not hardy here, lost SO many over the years, including my Southsea harvested ones.

15 years growth of Washie Washingtonia

I am amazed you can grow washies were you live, they just don't thrive here, despite it being warmer than were you live I'm not sure if its the wind or sand they don't like. Just out of interest can you grow CIDPs.

Dicksonia leaves

Hi Moods, now you have a little bit of greenery on top you could try a bit of foliar feed to give it a boost, assuming you still have no roots. icon_thumright
