About me

Really keen on architectural plants, but have little knowledge.
We have recently got a 6ft Dicksonia Antarcticus and two Musa Bajoo's one a ft tall one 3 yrs old. We live just off the sea front, so breeze and wind is the issue. Have got books and mates but am hungry to learn. All my interest is in ferns, palms etc, and growing them in pots. Pots bring their own problems, not least of which is Young Bali, our Mountain dog.
Most recent addition was a Phoenix Canariensis, small but perfectly formed, it is now a Washingtonia. A smashing palm that, according to the kids, confirms I am now beyond hope. I used to bring home cds, I now bring home plants. Oh dear.
