Looking back to shadehouse past the 3 Parajubaea tvt.

Looking down one of the dry creeks with ferns, Livistona, Archontophoenix, Howea, and Rhopalostylis.

Newly planted Howea belmoreana in the slightly reconstructed stream bank.

The three little Livistona australis looking as happy as ever.

Wow!
Your palms are getting big. Its really looks like a jungle. Im very impressive about your habilities to grow dypsis lanceolata, ravenea rivilaris and hyophorbe indica in that place. I live in a place with a similar climate, like New Zealand and i have never saw palms like yours in a cool climate.

 

congrats!

Howea forsteriana new area planted in late 2018. I managed to save the big one from a friends garden who didn’t want it. Transplanted in May 2019.

I will extend this area with heaps more Howea in time. This originally was a kikuyu infested mess that was too scary to venture into due to snakes. Then I tamed it and made it part of the sheep paddock. Since then I’ve reclaimed it for more garden.

Not a palm but it will provide a canopy for many palms in the future. Ficus macrophylla var columnaris. The Lord Howe Island banyan tree. It will get seriously massive. I love the colour these things get.

Thats where I will end tonight. I hope you enjoyed the journey.

Thanks. Archontophoenix vary depending on which part of the country their genetics come from. The A cunninghamiana are from the Mt Tambourine area in SE QLD (not far from Daryl's place). The A alexandrae are mostly from the Eungella region around 80kms inland from Mackay. This area was decimated by bushfires in 2018 and I'm not sure how much of the rainforest is left there. These alexandrae love opening up bronze to orange new leaves. That area never dries out and I give them good amounts of nutrients and organic material through the year, so they have really responded well. I can't wait for them to get some big bulky trunks forming.

Of the ones I have the tuckeri are the nicest and seem to do well in the ground but are a pain in the butt in pots. Other kings seem so easy in pots.

Awesome work Tyrone. All your palms look healthy. Looks like you've got many more palms to plant in the future as well.

Thanks. Yes the shadehouse will provide the new additions to the garden over time.

Ive got many Rhopalostylis sapida in there that need to go into individual pots. A job for winter.
