That is simply amazing, I never even knew Dypsis 'ovobontsira' pumped out red like that. Looking lush down there Mike.

Have the kids been using up the internet allowance Daryl ? This will frustrate a lot of people on palmtalk wanting to see your garden updates.

You know that you can log out and login back as you, Mike :). Or Daryl is actually posting the photos??

BTW, the garden is coming along... You should take photos of the new addition of the garden. And the Dypsis 'ovobontsira' Dark Mealybug is nice.. I didn't know they had red new growth.

Regards, Ari :)

Nothing wrong with my internet Ari, it's just that Daryl can download more photos in fewer posts than i can. Thanks Wal, the garden is looking good at the moment especially with all the rain/showers we're getting....lets see how it looks after winters past!...Cheers Mike Green(NEWCAL)

Also Mike, I think your "robusta" is what Dransfield has said is "tokoravina". Its that grouped leaflets thing.

Thanks for the great comments fellas. You could be right Bill about that D.robusta as i'm no expert on Dypsis sps especially when i bought it about 15 years ago in Sydney at Palmland under another name....Stumpy no1.Who Knows? Few do. Paul ,the Dypsis leptocheilos are one of my all time favourites...i'm going to post some pics of my recent trip to Cairns shortly in travelogs and there are some killer pics of D.leptocheilos outside our room at the resort. Tim ,more photos to come including the Ratpack garden,new hothouse ,rock walls etc etc...stay tuned....cheers Mike Green(NEWCAL)

Looking good Mike. I'll have to drop in sometime and check it out. Hows the not so newly planted area going.

I missed the meeting the other night. My son and his wife flew out to London to work so we saw them off.

Cheers

I don't recall Bill to be perfectly honest, looks great. That means that mine should be turning this colour next new leaf, kind of bronzy last time.

That toy looks unused Mike, plants going very well indeed, excellent job on the rock walls.

Have you finished planting for now ? I think I have, might drop one or two in today then wait for warmer weather.

Can we borrow your new toy to dig up our pond?? LOL. BTW, Scott was impressed with your dry-stack wall. He only has one question though, how do you keep it from collapsing??

Outstanding Mike, looking better than ever, doubt there would be a better grouping of New Caledonian palms in Australia.

Thanks Daz for the techo work, uploading photos, woo.. :D

Mike,

Your garden is amazing. I love the tropical feel and is very lush looking. How big is your property?

Thanks for sharing. And going into the winter? Are you sure what you mean? :D
