Re: April 6th 2008

Well, I took the plunge this weekend, uncovered everything and planted up the dry bed with goodies that wouldn't survive another freeze. So does that make me an optimist or just a fool :lol:

Re: Succulent Hardiness Experiment: Update

Btw, I've put one of those cheap cycads from Ikea under the same rain shelter where the Montana and Gentryi croaked and it came through unflawed I know :lol: , I left one from last year totally uncovered and apart from a little leaf burn it looks fine, hence I couldn't resist getting more as filler...

Re: Succulent Hardiness Experiment: Update

and I actually just put it down that I have bad clones of that 'hardy' lot If it makes you feel better Mark :wink: I actually think that certainly for the aloes we reached the max they can take. The only real gem in my collection is polyphylla, all three of mine came through with minor damage but c...

Re: thorny plants?

Razor wire covered with Clematis? May be a bit messy afterwards, finding bits of flesh amongst the bedding but on the upside they will never do it again :lol:

Re: T-Rex Suckering

Re: T-Rex Suckering

Does the theory of root disturbance still hold in aiding T-Rex to sucker? I have two in the garden, single stem, no pups but haven't really dug around them much. Will be interesting to see this year now that they've gained some height to see what happens when I dig under them for some more planting....

Oh well, plenty of other things to pick from that can introduce viruses and pests into the garden I gues...

Re: Cotswold Wildlife Park pic intensive - resized images

It's a bit of a track but I seem to remember a few good nurseries around that area too. I'd love to go Mark as it's a great day out and I really liked it last time we went, 1st or 2nd January it was and freezing cold :lol:
