Absolutely amazing !! Just found this thread and I'm inspired !! Couple of questions, does the tetrapanax not send up pups everywhere ?? And what happened to the potting shed at the end of the garden ??

Hi Jim and Thanks!

Thank you Graham. It’s a real shame that the blog is missing the exciting bits of the gardens construction but I’m thankful that I didn’t lose the lot!
The Tetrapanax were well behaved until last year. I’d probably pull out about 10 suckers a year but last year I must have pulled out 50-100!!
I sold the potting shed as it was too shaded to grow anything in there and ended up being a dumping area. Built the Balinese inspired jungle hut last spring to replace it.

Great to see you're back, Steve. (Your front is pretty good, too :lol:)

Have you filed away any older pics and vids that could be placed on the blog which plug some holes in the missing four years?

Boom boom! :-)

I’ve still got all the photos on my phone but this site has changed so much that I don’t know how to add photos etc anymore. All my posting is done by iPhone now as I don’t have a computer.
