Re: Yorkshire Kris blog NEW!!Tropical sleeper video.

Those aeoniums look good Kris, how hardy are they?! I take it that you would cover them too if the weather turned colder. Mine are kept dry in my unheated shed with minimal watering. Also how do you get your videos to show on the page? Mine are just a link to my video. Do I have to put the link in b...

Re: aralia elata review

Thankyou for the advise! I'll have a go in the next couple of weekends unless the weather turns too cold. I leave home when it's dark and get home in the dark still at the moment so I will see what it will involve and check for suckers too!

Re: aralia elata review

any deciduous plant should be moved while dormant Thats what I would do to. Do they leave suckers behind like T rex? So now should be ok then rather than leaving it a month or so?! Kris I think they do grow suckers when removed which is partly the reason for moving it in the first place. The other ...

Re: sending photo from mini ipad to forum

Problem with cropping is you're not shrinking the photo in size, just reducing the viewed area so you could lose some of the interesting bits This is true but I now if want to take a picture of a plant or the garden for this site, I don't fill the screen with what I want to show but take a slightly...

Re: sending photo from mini ipad to forum

I usually go to my pictures and just "Edit" the picture I want to use, then use the "crop" option to make the picture slightly smaller and then "save" it.
Then try to upload it to the site as mentioned before.
If you crop it enough it will be accepted.

Re: aralia elata review

Forgive me if I'm wrong but I'm sure that my variegated Arailia was grafted onto the top of a stem of the green Arailia. The variegated plant I had died after the winter of 2009. The following year it suckered at the base and all of them were green. When I moved to this house I bought a small 6" pi...

Re: TRex (Tetrapanax papyrifer 'Rex') clone recognition

Certainly a different form to mine as all the leaves on bobs are a nice space between them, mine overlap one another. Sorry phoenix i don't know where bobs came from. Looks very similar to dave browns though. Hi Aaron, My plant came from Desert to Jungle at Taunton. I believe the pups they sell are...

Re: The Great British Garden Revival.

It was good but to be honest I was kinda hoping there would be more palms on there. And I didnt realise tropical gardening is so untrendy right now either? I think gardening overall is untrendy. :( I think you have a point there Rob. I get really enthusiastic when talking about gardening and my gar...

Re: The Great British Garden Revival.

Yes it was good and thankfully it didn't give too many secrets away! I love having different and unusual plants in my garden and as soon as I start finding things that I grow turning up in garden centres, then I feel that I need to find something different! I know this will happen with time but for ...
