30 litre and 7 litre :D

The 30 litre is very chunky now 2.5 years later, think this year it will put on the most growth though as its fully settled now.


£70 for the 30 litre now, bargain!

Have just had delivered a beautiful Trachycarpus waggy and butia capitata!
Really gorgeous plants, loads of leaves and looking so healthy!
Got them from George as recommended and we are both so pleased with them.
Now the hard work digging the holes begins!

Thanks Cordy, the leaves in the first photo are like mine, very upright. Do they take a while to drop? Looks like they need a bit of space around them to show them off at their best.

Cordy, all three of your palms in the front have put on good growth. I love before and after photos.

Well, just been out and measured the new babies vital statistics.
They had a breezy and wet night in the back garden last night and look chirpy this morning!
Leaving them in their pots for a few weeks as we are off to Goa on 8th March for two weeks and will plant them when we get back.
Trachycarpus Waggie - Trunk height is 17inches. 19inches measured around the base of the trunk. Whole plant measures 56inches from the base at pot top level to the tip of the leaves.
It has two new spears up and is a fantastic plant.
It looks exactly like the one cordyman has shown.
The Butia Capitata - measures 65inches from base at pot top level to the tip of leaves - WOW!!!!
24inches measured around base of trunk.
Has three new spears showing well.

Very pleased with these two beautiful plants - so well grown and healthy - thanks to George!

I've been trying to get photos on to here - the last hour has been extremely frustrating - trying so hard to understand how to send them from mini ipad. No luck so far. Feeling the need for strong alcohol but its a tad early!!!!! icon_scratch icon_scratch
