Re: Soil

I live on the top of a hill that is part of the chiltern hills so the soil in my garden is chalky with a fair amount of flint stones for good measure. It drains quickly and the surface will start cracking due to dryness within three or four days of no rain, so during the summer i think i'd have to g...

Soil

I have a space in my back garden. I was looking at either a trachycpoarpus fortunei or a Chamaerops humilis. The soil however is quite dark and it looks like the previous occupants of my house used this area for regular bonfires. Will either of these two palms be ok in such soil? A fir tree that's n...

Re: Welcome to new members

Thanks for the welcomes :D The garden isn't completely a blank canvas, it is roughly 100ft long and a good half of that on one side is lined with mature fir trees.
