Looks like someone's gonna get a real bargain there. No point in me bidding because here (north west) they just wont survive the winter

I wouldnt say the last few winters have changed my perception, I just find that the Phoenix canariensis_CIDP's die a little too easy for me.

Same goes for me, If they'd been anything hardier than CIDPs I'd have had a go but -5c is more or less guaranteed every winter up here.

If anyone from the south coast is just starting to design a tropical garden then these are going to be a great addition for little money.

Can't see there being many bids.

All the CIDPs I saw down sarf this year had died.....in the west Sussex area.
Most wanted list - Any Young Trachycarpus and/or fern.

I'm sure you could bring them in and put them on the window sill over winter even in the siberian north west, I mean, they're only 5-6ft high :D

I could do that Flounder but carrying them individually up the beanstalk would be very tiring.
