On a more serious note -the lack of grass is probably more down to it being shaded a lot throughout the day. My garden gets full sun throughout the day, but my next door gets a lot of shade due to fence heights and trees, and his grass suffers more.

Been pricing a section of mine up (where the kids trampoline kills the grass) and the latest quote for 16 square metres fitted £1000!!! :? :?
Only got to do 10 square metres.

I bought one a few months ago from MyPalmShop along with a Cyathea dealbata. Good plants / good price. Seem to remember Rob buying from there as well . If you have room to overwinter, go for a dealbata as well . The silvery undersides to the fronds are stunning
