Rain

We've finally had our first prolonged deluge of rain in months here. After a dampening down yesterday I'm hopeful it's being soaked up by the plants. How's everyone else doing?

Tree fern help

Hard to say. Lots have lost their tree ferns after last winter. To give yours a chance you need to completely remove any dead or damaged Crozier's in the crown to allow any new growth to push up. Keep very well watered and everything crossed.

Heatwave

It's been too much for too long. I'd probably enjoy it on a tropical beach in the middle of a British winter, but not as an all-summer-long heatwave in the city. It hasn't rained here for 2 months (?), the only good thing about it is the grass is not growing. Oto I thought you loved living in subtr...

New from Rotherham

Welcome. Good hardy plants to give you a backbone and an evergreen one at that are Trachycarpus, bamboo (avoid Sasa and none clump forming varieties), fatsia, phormium and ground ferns. Many other less hardy plants will survive with some protection in an average UK winter so decide what you like and...

List of reccomended online suppliers/nurseries?

Definitely Nigel at Hardy palms. Personal favourite of mine for Trachycarpus and waggies is http://www.thepalmhouse.co.uk Bought a very nice tree fern from Seagraves online a few years back. This year I've had lots of poor plants via online orders. Most from private sellers but also surprisingly fro...

Chinese Yellow Bananas - Musella lasiocarpa anyone grow?

Mine is doing well but has never flowered. In fact I'm going to pot it on this weekend to try and give it a boost.

We are often dry in East Yorkshire but this spell is proving to be exceptional! Very hot again this weekend. I must have used thousands of gallons watering my relatively small garden and I'm on a meter. I don't mind though and love this heat. I just hope it persists through the summer holidays.

Planting out tender plants

All my tenders are in pots so I either pot on or leave them be rather than put in the ground. The only exception is my ensete hiniba which I'm trying to grow on but nearly lost it in early summer due to root rot so it's not doing much again.
