Nathan, Christ mate, well done for being able to keep that lot going, I know your near the sea, but you must have had some of the cold weather we had over the last two winters, well impressed with your list.

Yeah we did get cold weather here (as well as snow) & I did lose a few palms, but thankfully many survived & some have recovered after being damaged (Rhopalostylis sapida & Phoenix roebelleni for example)...
