Re: What's the best Varigated Bamboo?

I have never seen any large plants of Phyllostachys aurea variegata and i think that this may be due to it flowering fairly recently. I do know that alot of bamboo enthusiasts speak of it very highly . My own plant is only about four feet tall and showing great variegation . The only thing that i fi...

Re: Roscoea

I collected a load of seeds last year and sowed them straight away and then stuck them in the polytunnel. Did think about chucking them today because they were taking up space but dont think i will now. Keep me posted on how you get on Di.

Re: Roscoea

I have never managed to get any to germinate before but i think its mainly down to my lack of patience! They certainly seem to produce plenty of seed for me. Well worth waiting for though.

Re: Kernock Park Plants

The minimum order is ten trays but if you order online you can order just three trays but you have to pay an average of thirty pounds delivery.

Re: Kernock Park Plants

I have looked into ordering from here in the past and unlike quite a few of these places i think they do smaller orders for the general public.

Re: What do you think Ladies and gentlemen?

How about sticking a few fargesia bimbo in there for abit of a contrast with big leaves and for an evergreen hardy structure to it? Some...
