Musa basjoo flowering

It’s a shame the forum is closing and I didn’t stumble upon it beforehand. Thanks for the help on posting pictures, I thought it was a lot more difficult than that. Here are pics of the current crop and the latest musa’s I planted in the other corner by carefully removing some of the pups. The leave...

Musa basjoo flowering

Fair enough, thanks for the reply, think I’ll give it a miss on the saki recipe :lol:

Gutted it means it’s the death of the plant but there are plenty more pups to take over icon_cheers

Musa basjoo flowering

So I’ve just come back from a week camping and I’ve started tidying up the garden again I’ve noticed a huge flower from the largest of my 8 musa’s.

Cordy replant

Moral of the story....... I hope your Cordy was only recently planted Ha, it was planted around 6 years ago!! I’ve stripped the leaves back to hopefully help root growth (read this somewhere else) to the point it looks a bit silly which is a right shame given the size it is in my small(ish) garden....

Cordy replant

Thanks for the reply, although it doesn’t look spectacular it’s well established so it would be a shame if it died.
I’m just keeping the roots soaked throughout the night since the move. I might post some pictures tomorrow as well as some of my other collections.

Moving a Trachycarpus

Hi I want to replant my Trachycarpus to the edge of my garden since it Started to get in the way of the kids playing. It’s about 7ft tall, with a few male flowers (think it’s struggling where it is because it’s bedded in a clay based soil) How deep and wide should I go to to make sure I don’t damage...
