Is my cordyline dead?

To be honest Jon, if you have dug it up you have probably killed it. I have never dug one up and had it survive! However you may be lucky it may shoot from the bottom. :wink:

List of reccomended online suppliers/nurseries?

As has already been stated Hardy Palms takes some beating and Nigel is very helpful. icon_cheers But for a more varied selection of unusual plants Pan Global Plants a couple of miles up the M5 is also a joy to behold. icon_thumright

Forum new messages missing

I have noticed on some forums the for sale bit only stops up for a short period. I assume because if any one wanted it they would have bought it. As its not like a topic. But I am not sure if that applies here. icon_thumright

Jubaea growth.

I used to give my Jubaea the warm water treatment up until about 3years ago, then I started to let the largest part of my house as a holiday let, which meant I don't have access to them on a daily bases! :roll: But I did find they started to grow earlier in the year when I was able to use warm water...

If you like the colour it is oil it, although it will go slightly darker. If you don't like the colour stain it. Personally I prefer to oil it. icon_thumright

Jubaea growth.

For years now I have been banging on regarding slow growth of Jubs below 20C. Well this year I have been able to test that out due to the unseasonal prolonged hot weather! Two new leaves since the high temperatures, not bad considering I only normally get four a year. icon_cheers How are yours doing...
