Re: picture size

Apologies for not acknowledging your replies but I have still not successfully resize a pic, yet I have tried tools in M Office (2003) but even resizing down to 800x600 doesn't work. I'll keep trying.

picture size

I never used to have to resize pics for posting until recently so how do I do it. I don't have any editing software and can't do it 'on camera'.

Re: hardiness red cordyline vs. Phoenix canariensis_CIDP

There are a lot of 8ft+ red Cordys around here but not many good CIDPs. As for Torbay Dazzlers, there are lots of them too, many again 8ft+ but I have never seen one flower or branched!

Re: Eucalyptus ID

Gunii leaves are usually rounder at that size and don't look long or wide enough for Globulus, it doesn't look like either to me.

Re: Begonia ID

Begonia Thurstonii, don't think it can take a frost but if you have plant or two to spare you could try next autum and leave one outside. It prefers shade not full sun.

Re: Who's enjoying the current mild frost/dry spell?

No sun here today but it's dry with a cold wind but relatively mild at 9c, supposed to warm up a degree or two in the coming days but cold nights and possibly frost have been forecast.

Re: Nannorrhops

I shouldn't get too excited but one Nannorrhops has just germinated in two months,(bag method) shoot only, which is quicker than I expected, still have another 4 to go.

Re: Small B&Q Cycad, to get or not to get?

Our B&Q has had them in a couple of weeks ago and had I not bought a similar size one last year at the Range I would have bough one. They will gradually deteriorate under the poor lighting and dry atmosphere in the big sheds so get one as soon as possible.

Re: Migrants on the move.

That is early! I don't expect to see any here untill mid March and then they don't stay for as long as they do in the Autumn.
