Splitting Palm tree

Posted: Yesterday at 14:14
My mother has a large Austrailn Palm that was frost damaged years ago and grew 3 separate new trunks. The old trunk is still there and was cut to about 3 feet the new trunks are around 6 feet. Do you think it would be possible to divide the palm into 3?. Any my advice on how to proceed with this?

My 'New' cedar greenhouse

Posted: 21/04/2015 at 20:09

 

I've been after one for a while and a month ago managed to get a used Cedar greenhouse on eBay for £100. It's 18x8 and around 30 year old so well built.

It took me around 90 hours to complete and total cost was around £350.

I have uploaded a video to youtube of my restoration.

hedge recovery

Hi All,

Have cut my hedge down by half, not sure of the type but is not conifer, more like a box/yew.

I have mulched,fed and watered it but anyone got any idea's about whether it will recover.

Looks like a way for the big seed companies to enlarge their mail order book.

Greenhouse bar capping

Posted: 18/03/2015 at 18:52
Thanks, looked there but no joy.

Most of the products on the market are for attaching to a flat internal rafter.

I have a 'T' bar with glass either side. The wood bridging the glass is starting to rot so I want to cap it.

I guess the other option would be to plane it down level but that seems like hard work on a large greenhouse.
