Thank you all :)

I've got several of the green ones too, they are very slow growers.


Thanks for all your comments :)

I've had these for many years Delonix, they root easilly from cuttings.

Thank you all :)

I've got several of these Delonix, they seem to tollerate being hot and dry and can also live quite happily outside in our Welsh rain :)


It is hard, Karen. I gave lots of ours to the daughter already so doubt she will want anymore.

Mostly I don't find decluttering difficult, Paul, it's the OH who makes me put the breaks on. We'd be minimalists if it were up to me! (Apart from houseplants, of course...)

They do represent British an European gardens, Klahanie, but mostly RHS ones in the UK. If I remember rightly they used to produce 1 or 2 a year for certain anniversaries.

Shirley, I think individually they are worth a few pounds each. Might be a bit more as a bigger collection, I suppose. Certainly nowhere near as much as they cost to buy!!


very impressive .

Looking very nice Shirley , It takes a lot of sorting out the garden . Moving things are best from Oct-Feb depending on milder days . Never most in frost , I usually keep what I move by digging hole twice as big as root ball, nice soft soil and really drowing it on milder day with also my own made kitchen veg and whatever in composter, it soon gets going again .

Your garden looks very nice, and tidy
