I designed my garden Dave & company to acheive an all round year of greenery. The tree to the left of the palm is an olive tree, never really had any fruit to talk about, Im told the winds in West Sussex are to strong for olives, however I feed all my tree's with seaweed fertilizer and it keeps them healthy, when the better weather comes I will show you all more of my sub-tropical paradise.

Delighted Dave its nearly that time now, well perhaps another hour.  I have a lovely photo of my garden this winter in the snow, which didn't last 5 mins.

Many thanks one and all for your instant response to my quiery, I look forward to more conversation on this site.  In fact here is a quick one.  I have an Australian Tree Fern, grows here in Bognor Regis no problem.  During the last two winter's the leaves gradually went black with the frost and as recommended in the early Spring I cut them off to allow new growth.  This year has been mild and the leaves are as green as they were last Summer, should still cut them off in Spring or can I leave them so as to create a double bank of leaves, many thanks.

Discodave,

                Thank you for your feedback, what you say does make sense with me, the leaves are the right colour. The original plant was in someone's garden in West Sussex on top of a hill so I think that it could well be hardy.  Many thanks again.

I have recently joined this forum, however with my first posting I had 3 replies, I am told that I have to go to my email to read the replies, is there an easier way?

Thankyou.

I have grown this plant from seed, no idea what it is called the flower forms from the leaves like borgonvillia, I think thats how you spell it.  My wife tells me its a wild plant, if it is I am going to fill my garden with them.  Can anyone tell me its name. Try to upload a photo, but it did not work.  Why are these uploading apps so complicated.

Many Thanks  Keith Trotman (Paghan nr Bognor Regis)
