Palm advice please

MB, as you live in Telford I would plant the Jubaea outside, as I think they are slightly more hardy also the ultimate size is bigger, if you are young enough to watch it grow. :roll: Also do you intend to move house in the future? If so plant the other one out. icon_thumleft

Sorry to hear of your predicament, how often do you have these storms from Africa? You know the old saying " It's an ill wind that blows no one any good. At least you have honed your housekeeping skills!!!!!! :DD

Hi Dave welcome.

I to have had little success with colocasia! Then I remembered what Andy Cap used to say " If at first you don't succeed pack it in and don't be a Charlie". That works for me every time. :wink: :lol:

HELP! Purchasing exotic/tropical flowering plants in the UK or abroad

Hi James,

How soon do you want them, the first three were available at the spring show in Malvern last year. Not a million miles from you if you can wait that long. Pan Global which is even closer to you, just up the M5 would also be worth a look. icon_thumright

I am...
