Editing an Archie - alas

Recommended Posts

DoomsDave

This reality stuff is a real pain sometimes. Do something with a pure heart and good intentions and it ends up a disaster anyway.

I planted that Archontophoenix tuckeri pictured below with the idea of it becoming part of this “Uber canopy “ of Archies above an unter canopy of Chambeyronias. Chambeyronia did well and Archontophoenix became superfluous.

Don't be sorry!

It was getting awful crowded in there. More room for who's left, which is Chambeyronia! Come visit and see!

An unfortunate end, but such is gardening.

Trust me, there's replacements GALORE!

That Archie was gorgeous, but I've got others I'll keep.

Oh man, bummed to see that. That Tuckeri was a beast too! But I understand. I have a few Cunninghamiana I will be editing over the next few years once the understory palms get some size myself.

I plan to remove my two largest Rhopalostylis,  because they are too tall to tie up the fronds any longer.  (I tie the fronds to prevent uncontrolled fall and damage to plants beneath these palms.)

Those falling leaves with their heavy bases can be like war clubs when they dry out. They're so thick and heavy they wouldn't go through the shredder.
