Re: Leave snow on leaves or shake off

I haven't knocked any snow off mine yet and as I look out the window, I can see it melting with drops falling off the end of the leaves! :) I think i'm going to have a look if any have got too much weight on them though. Are you not planning to put the umbrella structure over your washingtonia this ...

Re: Cordymans Winter Wrapping Walk VIDJO - *tonight*

Nice Trachycarpus's! I didn't realise you had so many. In a couple of years when they get some height, they're gonna look great!

Re: Arlons Blog: Palm Centre Jubaea + C. Rumphii

Nice Jub Arlon! They are a great size.

Cordyman they should be well rooted, they're nice and healthy (although I haven't taken the pot off yet) lol

It's not even April fools yet either! haha

Smells of ripe orange too.. sounds nice :)

I think if these were brought into selling commercially they'd fly like hot cakes!

The How cluttered is your Greenhouse Thread!

Following on from my The 'How cluttered is your windowsill' Thread, I thought I'd post a picture of my greenhouse!! Due to the cold weather coming in, I've crammed as much in as possible! Its bubble wrapped and has an electric fan heater inside, with a thermostat plug keeping it at 5 degrees minimum...

Re: Jubaea question-Can they be moved? PLUS Palmcentre Pictu

Thanks guys! :) ash101uk I did struggle to find them, they were right at the back on the left where there's a zigzag path. Tropicalwon The big palms are nice, I reckon some big deals could be done if you had a spare few thousand! lol But I think it would still be a risk with the washy. I agree Googl...

Re: Jubaea question - Can they be moved?

Thanks for all the advice. I've had a think and going with what a few of you have said, I think i'll just keep repotting them as they grow as I wouldn't want to loose one. Also the time for them to recover may outweigh the extra growth they put on anyway. So i'll just wait till I get my own house to...

Re: Palm spotting in the Wirral.

Wow! Thank you for the pictures :D

Are the pictures with the ancient Persian looking wall in someones house? Because they must have a big garden budget! Lovely sized trachys, butias and jubaeas?

The walls and gate in the other picture look very nice as well with the phoenix's inside.

Re: Tropical gardens on itv plus one tonight (7th Jan)

Watched it last night on the itv player, she made Cornwall seem like a different country!! Dunno how she managed to film all of that on the few sunny days we had last year!! The trachys were massive, good to know they'll still be around in 150 years! :)

Jubaea question-Can they be moved? PLUS Palmcentre Picture's

I was just wondering if anyone had experience of moving Jubaea's? I've been saving up my wages and hope to buy a nice sized Jubaea soon. I still live at home with the parents so was wondering if they can moved as easily as Trachycarpus? From reading on here, palms tend to grow a lot quicker and bett...

Re: Best flowering flowers

I know their not evergreen but I think Rudbeckia's are great! Easy from seed and produce a great bushy plant, with lots of flowers through summer.

Also New Guinea Impatiens are good ground cover.. not hardy..

Or Periwinkle.. Great ground cover! Plus hardy
