What are these palm trees?

First looks like Trachycarpus fortunei, second looks like cordyline australis last one might be another cordyline. They need plenty of water and  maybe some winter protection (depending on where you are) although they are all fairly hardy.

Gunnera problem – leaves turning brown and holes appearing

Posted: 22/06/2017 at 11:47

I've only recently bought a gunnera so I'm no expert but I did read that the leaves (and all of it really) need to be moistened regularly as they can dry out and go crispy. They come from cloud forests were the air is perpetually damp.

I just found this bare root in a skip And had to save it. I've potted it up and given it a good drink. Any ideas what it is?

That'd be the himalayan vanishing tree - very elusive. Pretty if you've got some decent plants behind it. :-)

Green bamboo recommentation

Posted: 17/06/2017 at 13:05


Can anyone recommend a bamboo with a green culm that is a clumping variety? I've been looking at the fargesias which are green and white but I'd like something more natural, like you'd find in a lush green rain forest. Is there such a thing?
