Great job it's all looking really good. Lots of work to do there.

You were very lucky to get a trunked C medularis, it's one of my favourite TF. You should be able to tell if it's ok by gentle feeling inside for the new fronds pushing up. The ones on ours are already on the move and pushing up.

Keep up with the pic's.

The garden looks like it is coming together Becky and Greg and the plans you have sound great! I love the idea of the tree ferns up the slope and the sizes you've bought will def give the right atmosphere. I love the raised deck too Greg..extra garden room and a lovely design. 2 more members of the forum that have the bug! :lol:

Hi Greg

I, too, love the idea of the tree ferns up the side of the steps. Like Petefree said - an irrigation system would probably be a godsend during the summer months.

(Can I just say - you need a new pair of jeans though! :lol: )

Cheers

John

Becky, you have such a lot of work to do but you have made good progress, due no doubt to having a keen young assistant 'helper'! :lol: Well done!
