Re: Ideas for hiding pots?

I've just buried mine and your right, it's never coming out. How about building a square planter around it out of deck boards. Just something to disguise the sides, and run a peice around the top to cover the pot rim. Leave it open bottomed and you could then just lift it up and over the palm and co...

Re: What is the growth rate of a mature Chammy?

Mine is slow lol but that's a good thing as I love the size it is right now. When mine arrived it had 107cm's of trunk, however the soil in the pot was very low and a lot of roots were showing so I topped it up with soil/gravel (mostly gravel) and lost about 7cm of trunk. So it was really about 100c...

Re: Ideas for hiding pots?

I don't have a pic, but for a while I had some reed screening wrapped around the pot.
I then put some grasses (floppy ones) around the edges.

Re: Osteospurmum - what a great specimen, none stop flowers!

I ripped mine out a few years ago as they were rampant and went a bit leggy. Same here. Ripped tons of the stuff out and left just a few clumps. They get cut back to an inch or two , which keeps them in check. They soon shoot and flower. Thats what I will do this time round, I have a orange and red...

Re: Today's acquisition ........

If it was mine I would be tempted to saw it straight down the middle and make 2 clumps.
Pop it in the ground and keep it well watered.....A great buy.

Re: Where to buy a mature Chamaerops humilis

Thats a beaut, I'd be chuffed with that.
Ive just planted my big one, I cheated and only dug 18" deep and then built a raised bed around it. Was easier than trying to drop the whole palm in a massive hole, and it looks good too.

Was thinking the same thing, with the hairy trunks they don't look right, but stripped they would look really exotic.

Re: Arundo donax

I've tried twice here in worcester and both have died in the first winter.
Not sure why although both were in fairly damp spots so maybe winter wet.
