It has am better chance of survival in Sussex but what a place to dig it out from....
Maybe these deals are more appealing to the strong bloke type than me!

There's two things that stop me travelling the 10 miles or so to dig it out
1/ I'm potless
2/Even if I had money, I'm too tight to part with £100

The reason we put UK as a limit was to stop everyone coming back from holiday and posting pics of the millions of Washingtonia they saw in Southern Europe or the US.

Perhaps a better limit would have been 'outside, in cool temperate zones' :wink:

Thats good thinking Dave as i never thought of that.

Lets just leave it how it was and have UK Washingtonias only as it would be pointless having dozens of pictures from all over the World?

Sorry Exotic life,
You will have to start another thread on Washingtonias in your Country only.

No problem, that is why i did not post them already. Most of you know my palms anyway and i am still enjoy the pictures from the UK.
