Re: Anyone rent a polytunnel/growing space?

You might be lucky to have a close friend or family member who doesn't look after their garden and let it over grow?? - in return you can give them a good garden and keep a patch to yourself!!! :wink:

Re: Phoenix roebelini at local GC

Its actually ok - still alive!! Brown (basically dead) fronds on all the outer ones- and mostly green in the centre - so should be ok i hope, i messed with the centre spears, and nothing came out of place, seemed very rigid.

Re: My Masterplan - Viewing ahead 10 years from now

Not too shallow and not even sure if it will contain real water on purpose, only winter it waterlogged around the far part of the blue area....or may shortcut with bluish pebble stones well below the grass level, not too fond of huge bog plants and have to look at safety of my child too in that area...

Very big for £20! I might have to replace mine - but really want to bring back mine from the dead after leaving it outside all winter.

My Masterplan - Viewing ahead 10 years from now

Has anyone wondered how their garden would look or you want it to look in 10 years time etc :roll: ....

Re: Twin stem trachycarpus fortunei

They do exist but normally its 2 seeds in the same pot. These trachys in my garden were quite small when I purchased them. They shared a small pot, were sawn apart and planted next to each other. The picture was taken 2.5 years ago and they are much bigger now. John Thanks for sharing John! How man...

Re: Fern Robs Blog

On a more serious note -the lack of grass is probably more down to it being shaded a lot throughout the day. My garden gets full sun throughout the day, but my next door gets a lot of shade due to fence heights and trees, and his grass suffers more.
