Re: Really happy I widened the border! + new plants

Hello Cordy looks really good now. Lovely plants.Your border will look amazing in a few weeks, months to come. Only one thing, that bamboo screen you have put up , is it the thin type(if you squeeze it , it will break) as if yes it soon rots away and falls apart and the sun dries it out and it break...

Re: Musa Basjoo Tips

Hello Barry would cutting them right back and then bringing them indoors be better over winter? I just like the idea of having them in pots as I can move them around my garden . Or could I just leave the entire pot outside and wrap the pot up to protect the roots from frost and snow? I do not mind c...

Musa Basjoo Tips

Hello I have ordered 2 plants off Ebay and should get them asap. I was thinking about putting them in large plastic pots and hiding the pots with bamboo( cutting some bamboo fence screen up and wrapping it around pots) as all my garden pots are clay terracotta now. I have bought multi purpose compos...

Re: £60 - German VS UK waggie?!

Hello I like both plants in different ways. The leggy ones look like the one I have just bought. I love it. And the smaller bushy one is really nice too. Good choice buying both types. My 2 Cordylines which were over 6 feet tall( purple one and a green one) both pegged it over winter and I miss havi...

Re: Cordyline purpurea felled

Hello what a right shame. I had one about 6 feet tall which was 9 years old which done the same thing a few weeks ago. Cut it right to the ground hoping it will reshoot in a few months( like my green one which was about 7 feet and the entire trunk rotted, but it is now reshooting from the ground and...

Re: Musa bajoo keep in pot and plant in ground

Hello Alan I am thinking of buying a Musa Banjoo and putting it in a large pot down bottom of my garden. When you bring yours in for winter, where do you store them and do you water them over winter and do they still grow? I was thinking of standing mine in my diningroom over winter. Or do they need...

Re: Hello from Norfolk

Hello
just bought another palm, will wait until it arrives in post and plant it and then take pics so my garden does not look so empty, lol.. Bought a Chamaerop Humilis as my other one survived the cold winter well and looks good. Sun is out today.
