Re: grass tree live or die

we have had ours for about 3 years now, the first year we kept it inside as it needed treating for scale, but the last 2 years it has been outside either in my shed or under the car port, i bring it under cover early to allow it to dry out before frost, its probebly the only thing that looks ok :lol:

hi tom , welcome icon_thumleft i would say tree ferns (Dicksonia antarctica,s) are great , they give a massive impression, and as long as you stuff the crown with straw there hardy icon_thumleft , but ricinus are good as a summer bedding , they grow huge in one season, and are easy to grow from seed...
