2:31 what a jungle view!

Looks great Karl.

Is that the big Acer bloodgood you were talking about the other week at 5.31?

I see you have a lot of bare ground around the base of most of your specimen plants. Are you going to leave it that way or start to fill them up with smaller plants suitable to be used as ground cover?

Adam, yes that is the bloodgood in vid, ive been down the road of underplanting around the bigger Trachycarpus's but they keep getting damaged when mowing lawn!, I've also tried grass right up to the trunk but this send's the trunk's green on the bottom!, it's one i'm chewing over about at present, I may long term do away with all the grass & go mad on underplanting. karl.

Cheer's tom. Steve, you missed load's you naughty boy :lol: ,there is a a very rare lime green linearis off nigel from hardy palm's which flowered & is now regrowing a head!, spider's web is correct, some smaller Trachycarpus's came off nige but theres another three 110cm ones you missed :lol: , that came from vallagio-verdi. To be honest i'm no expert on trex! all I can say is that it came as a small plant from akamba? not sure of origin but the leaf's do look flat & not dished. karl.
