I added a Cycas media a few months ago and thats starting a flush now, as is one of the revoluta's. My l...

Re: Fern Robs Blog

Where did you get the Medularis from please rob? After another. I bought one a few months ago from MyPalmShop along with a Cyathea dealbata. Good plants / good price. Seem to remember Rob buying from there as well . If you have room to overwinter, go for a dealbata as well . The silvery undersides ...

Same here. Ripped tons of the stuff out and left just a few clumps. They get cut back to an inch or two , which keeps them in check. They soon shoot and flower.

Re: Osteospurmum - what a great specimen, none stop flowers!

ps. Could have sworn the purple one was bought as purple spoon with the unique flowers, and planted in that location, is there a chance it could have reverted? Seem to remember "purple spoon" not being frost hardy. If you did plant it out, perhaps its been lost to one of the odd frosts you've had.
