Walking around the yard weeding and watering and thought I would share some of what I have growing. Needle palms, sabal minor mccurtain, sabal minor, sabal Birmingham, various opuntias, yucca rostratas.
Hello all! Just. Question. I am in the Phoenix area and last year I planted a beautiful royal palm. I noticed the base of the trunk was starting to Crack. My instincts were telling me that it's normal since the trunk is expanding. Today for a moment I thought, could this be sun damage? It is planted on an Eastern exposure in-between two homes. Hopefully it's normal and she is just getting chunky! Thank you for your time.
Does anyone know the cold hardiness of w. filifera in proportion to it´s age or trunk dimensions, also does anyone know if the location of the tree dramatically affects the cold hardiness of it´s seeds
Here is a catalog of all the bigger CIDP's around London and their locations, so that they can be monitored moving forward. It also helps for people to know where they can find them exactly, should they be in the area and decide to visit some. Many of these CIDP's are not well known, so I will be photo-documenting and logging quite a lot of fairly large specimens in the city and suburbs.
Starting with the one at Lambeth Bridge...
River Gardens, Fulham
These CIDP's on the intersection are fruiting profusely and producing viable seed...
Another one further down the street...
There's two big CIDP's outside Hackney town hall. They've been there about 20 years.
It's in need of a trim, which will make the trunk look even bigger...
Mount Street gardens, Mayfair
White City, west London
Next to a church in Ealing, West London.
Next to Wimbledon fire station.
People's back gardens in Bermondsey, south west London
Wapping, East London
Apartments in Fulham
St. Annes in Notting Hill
Front gardens kitted out...
Another in Notting Hill...
A back yard in the London suburb of Leyton...
Decent sized specimen in Walworth...
That will do for now. I will upload the rest tomorrow as there are tons of other CIDP's in people's gardens/yards. I've barely scratched the surface on the London CIDP's yet...
