Re: How long does it take for Cordylines to form trunks

My australis has grown a 20" trunk in two years but it does get a lot of heat in summer being in full sun and next to a fence panel.

Re: What do you have planned over the winter?

Already have mice. They appeared after the ground was dug up for the development backing onto my garden in 2012. As for rats, i'll have the baseball bat at the ready :twisted: :twisted:

Re: What do you have planned over the winter?

It was worse than that kata, i advertised most of the wood for firewood and one bloke came and took it. I pulled some more out today as seen in first pic to make a bonfire for nov 5th. But that's just scratched the surface. My garden is 100 feet long so wheelbarrowing some to a skip will be somewhat...

Re: How High is your garden?

I did it again but this time in the bottom of the valley. The road leading from my house to the bottom of the valley is dead straight and about 200 yards long yet it drops 26 metres (85ft) in height. This is why i am housebound when it snows heavily as it takes a serious 4x4 to climb a hill that ste...

Re: what aspect is your rear garden?.

That's the hurdle that stopped me from doing it. Only enough space for 4 cars on the road & that's if the neighbours aren't in. My drive is big enough for three cars and i have two cars myself.

Re: Naturally getting colder.

Been hovering around 6c last two nights and looking the same for tonight. Days have struggled to reach 18c. Leaves on a couple of trees have started to go yellow already, that didn't happen til november last year.
