I bought an Ensete off him in march,

Then everyone here began talking about their Ensetes and others. By April I had to write to him cus I wanted my plant..like yesterday. :lol: He would'nt part with it he said till all signs of frost are gone.

Good as his word it was weeks before I got it....felt like weeks lolol

Problem is Trudy I am hoping to buy another Trachycarpus £40.00 . Maybe later in the year for the Bamboo.
