Re: Beat The Weather Depression!

Great news JBally with the trachycarpus seeds, I love watching things germinate. All my vegetable seeds are popping up and I'm going to investigate these canna seeds everyone's raving about. I've had temperatures of +15c in hampshire the last couple of days... in my greenhouse though! Could really d...

Re: clarity of the sun

I know this may sound stupid, but can plants still grow with clouds? On my summer bedding seedlings they've grown great the last couple of days, is this because the suns been directly out? So is there a comparison between sun hours and growth?

Re: Conservatory plant ideas

Pelargoniums! I collect the species ones which are much more interesting. They've all got different leaf shapes yet they all share the same type of flowers (which is how the plants are related in the genus). I keep mine in terracotta pots. Could always have more palms, some that are a bit tender as ...

Re: Another difficult I.D

Thanks guys for your suggestions so far, I think Conifers is right with the first one being an Okra, as once I've googled it, it does look similar. We think a variety called 'beck's big buck'. The best guess for the 2nd one could be the Cythea from Fern Rob. The trunk looks like it's got leaf scars ...

Re: my first garden job

This is how I started too Call, worked for an old lady in her 80's, she really appreciated the help as she still wanted her garden to look good in front of her neighbours. Cut the lawn, looked after the veggie patch and also hoed and weeded the flower beds! The best thing though was i'd get an ice c...

Re: Thinking about what to do for my new tropical garden ide

I'd be tempted to plant up a tropical herbaceous border. With Rudbeckia's, Bright Dahlias's and Red hot pokers as well as your trachycarpus for some height.
