Plams around Sydney

I think that is normal. It's just had the old leaf bases removed recently.

I think what has happened here mate, is that a few leaves have just been removed and that new tan colour will quickly go grey. ;)

As Neil said.

Here are a couple of pretty ones in Cronulla. A cute pineapple cut destined for an early grave, and a Royal.

Awww the poor girl,

well I hope that you helped the poor plant out with this problem....

I did once and ended up with scores of pots for years, that took me ages to be able to give away.

It helped me get over the  'I must save all seeds' type of thinking, that I used to have.

Just see this beautiful Howea forsteriana near our home near to a park , I m not sure if someone planted it there or just grow from seed? As it's too way close to wall I'm worry about its fate in future ?

Offer the owner to relocate it. Put it in your garden.

Yes Mohsen, Pip has already demonstrated pictorially how easy it is.

He is not kidding, he would not suggest something that he would not do himself. :D

I think there is no owner! As it's outside a park, maybe council ... how easy are they to be transplanted?

Fairly easy with the right sort of lifting equipment etc. Dug manually you can avoid damaging any services like sewer pipes it might be near. It's not good next to the wall like that. A bit close. The council likely would be happy to see it go. If the council removed it, they would do it by chainsaw though.

I was down in Sydney a week or so ago ( my mum's 80th birthday ) and took a couple of photos of palms growing in the City and suburbs.....

These Livistonias ( ? ) are thriving in what I suspect is a pretty hostile enviroment.....Its either Pitt or George St in the City CBD

It was a cold wet day ( for Sydney ) only 15c.

A couple more pics in the suburb of Penshurst on the south side of Sydney.

I catch the train in from Campbelltown to the Airport and like to spot palms in the suburban back yards adjacent to the railway line. Commonly grown specimans are Bangalows, Queens and Livistonias and a fair smattering of Norfolk Is. and Lord Howe Is. examples.

The train trips are best in November when the Jacarandas are in full bloom. The Sydney Basin takes on a purple haze from millions of trees flowering.

Most Livistonas are tough palms, especially australis. They can cop abuse even as small seedlings and laugh off conditions that would damage or destroy other palms.

It seems they are very good with Transplanting too, I have seen large / established L.Australis been transplanted to the new sites and they didn't even notice it at all..

And here is one flowering in my front yard Mohsen.

That Thrinax radiata in the front does not seem to tolerate neglect as well as the rest of the garden, it probably needs a more moist position

No I have not watered out there for months, I keep thinking that it would rain soon, and I am bone lazy.

I'll water now and with surfactant it will need it for sure.
