... I have a few trees but not sure what you are looking for. I have a smoke bush for purple foliage, an indian bean tree for its leaf shape and a fatsia grown tree style. I have just cut the tree fatsia down as it was getting a bit tall (towards six foot / 2m). You can grow climbers or scramblers ...

Aloe Arborescens - can't bring it indoors...

ah, it didn't look that big from the photo. I was comparing it to the plastic or wood in the background and the fatsia leaf. It only looked about ten to twelve inch pot which wouldn't have weighed that much. We use perlite quite a bit instead of sand for planting up tubs. Consider ...

... you call Tropical and what look you want to achieve. Jungle/Mediteraian /Arid or a mixture/ Plenty of so called British plant can be incorporated .Fatsia varieties /red hot pokers/coleus/spider plants annuals are endless.

... groups on Facebook which are very active. Now is probably not the best time to get lots of things but hardy plants like bamboo, trachycarpus, fatsia etc can be planted out And should establish well before winter arrives.

... Good hardy plants to give you a backbone and an evergreen one at that are Trachycarpus, bamboo (avoid Sasa and none clump forming varieties), fatsia, phormium and ground ferns. Many other less hardy plants will survive with some protection in an average UK winter so decide what you like and ...

Do insecticides damage banana plants?

John I have fatsia within touching distance of the banana, yet they haven't migrated thankfully. I have 4 musa basjoo and they are clear too. The pesky things must like the red leaves.

Do insecticides damage banana plants?

... on everything BUT my banana funny enough but the only thing that did work was a heinous dousing of Bug Clear Ultra. I mean they were ALL over my Fatsia japonicas and millions on my bamboo. Within two days they were gone and ive not seen them since! For £4 it was well worth it.

Re: After the Polar Vortices in NJ

I put a sack over it and left it. complete defoliation and tip went soft..checked it today and green shots are ...
