Steve
Do you think that we will get away with a fairly mild Spring this year with maybe just a handful of very cold days
The Winter has certainly been very kind so far

Re: 1 large Dicksonia antarctica or a few smaller ones

Re: Musa Basjoo Flowering

Sorry another question from a novice grower
The stem that has produced the flower has not produced any pups yet
When the stem dies following flowering should I keep the root stock in the hope that it will regrow or is the whole plant finished

Re: storm warning north sea

It was real windy here this afternoon but no damage sounds like it was much worse around the coastal areas and over towards the east I think we had it easy here in comparison

Sorry to read about your tree ferns Rob sounds like you has a real battering in Sheffield :ahhh!:
