was that the clump which was on the island next to the prickly pears? I saw some there myself, but didn’t want to put them to the trouble.

Theres a lot of that arundo donax too! I’ve never had any luck with it myself.

There are some nice big cacti next to them as well, they must be 10ft tall or so.

I went on teusday, there wasn't a huge palm selection for outdoors , only the trachys out the front. Two had been sold already, I bought the other 10 and the yuccas. I also got the 'black boy' grass tree inside.
Glad I was there early or it would of been a dissapointing long trip!

now that’s just greedy! :lol:

I had my eye on the 'black boy' grass myself, it was a bargain at £80, it was about 4or 5ft too wasn’t it?

I never even thought about the tracys outside to be honest. Theres also an Italian garden which is part of the palms too.

That is an absolute bargain! Not many of these hanging around. I think they have been banned from being exported from Australia.

I’ve got to go and get some maggots tomorrow from the angling centre next to the palms, so might sneak in and get some more stuff.
