Re: The Cycads, Loran Whitelock

Very good book on cycads.

Lucky to get a copy via eBay for £30, from a guy that lives at the end of the road I live on. Gave me a load of books on palms too.

Seen it on amazon before for 3 times the price shown.

Re: Crews Hill today

Thanks for the heads up about the hillside nursery in a previous topic. Been there before but first time in the tunnel at the end with the exotics.

I popped in last year (autumn I think) and they had the same Cyathea then. Might be available for a little while longer.

Re: Crews Hill today

I popped in Saturday, could not resist one of the Cyatheas.

Was my third visit, stock levels were very low compared with the last 2 times I have visited.

Re: Palm Centre Winter Sale 2013

I guess its a mistake on the website. The 30ltr size (BCR-30) was £70 reduced to £35.

Re: Palm Centre Winter Sale 2013

Thanks for the heads up on the sale.

One size of Butia's they have in stock were 50% off. I though £35 for a Butia this size was a good deal. Still have plenty left.

I also picked up a small Chamaerops Humilis Vulcano and a Yucca Rostrata.

Re: What palms to propagate

I've tried a lot of palm seeds. The ones I like the best and would recommend are Rhopalostylis Sapida and the other Trachycarpus species. I tried Nannorrhops ritchiana. Very slow, to the point I was not sure if they were not growing. I would recommend buy small seedlings if you can get hold of them....
