Re: anyone planted out his maurelli ?

My Maurelii also has roots out the bottom of the pot .My green fell over and had some damage to the roots and that caused root rot .I cut the roots off and now they regrown all good .Not given no water since October .My wife want happy I used a hairdryer to dry them out .

Re: paulownia cuttings

Oh I see .You cant beat the flowers on them .Don't they grow them for timber in some country as they grow so fast .Are you enjoying the mild wet winter ?

Re: Unwrapped plants

I just unwrapped my Basjoo .No point in wrapping them so far .I like that you can wrap them and forget about them for four or five months and they look ok .Most plants would be dead long time ago.

Re: musa sikkimensis

I do like the stripes on Sikki .How do you store them winter time ? I always loose the stem on them .A hybrid would be great something more hardy .
