Your most coveted plant?

I have recently taken delivery of a Schefflera taiwaniana, a plant that I have been pining over for at least a year.

Crinum lily

I have a pink one still struggling on in flower in the snow now. It's a shame that they only seem to come in pastel shades (no hot reds, oranges, or yellows).

Newbie from High Wycombe

Thanks tatter and GrevilleAJ! At first I hated the concrete but after a little time it grew on me. Like you said, it retains the heat well. It is also south-facing and due to the angle of the slope it receives the sun all year because it is above the rooflines. We have softened it by planting some t...

Type of Schefflera?

Hi all, I recently saw this Schefflera at what I felt was a bargain price (for it's size) and took a punt. I suspect that it is Schefflera actinophylla, but what I would really love is for it to be a Schefflera delavayi (so that I can keep it outside all of the time). 20190118_123129.jpg Does anyone...
