We're moving and have a variety of large and smaller plants that we cannot accommodate in the new home.
We need a good home for these plants.
Please contact me and I'll send you photos and perhaps you can make me an offer for the lot that I cannot refuse.
Thanks

Hi,  I love gardening and growing plants. I collect Beaucarnia recuvata and have quite a few that are multi-stemmed and over 2 metre tall. Last summer 4 flowered and 3 were female. I collected the seed.
I studied horticulture in the  early 80's and had a landscaping business for 14 years. Now, when not growing plants or designing/maintaining websites, I'm assistant guide on 4x4ing trips throughout Southern Africa.
Look forward to interacting with like-minded gardeners.

Suggestions/Questions / Kokerboom - Quiver Tree
« on: January 16, 2007, 21:35:30 PM »
I have a Kokerboom or Quiver Tree that is around three metres or more tall. It has this very long stem with a few leaves way up at the top. Can anyone tell me if I can cut the stem off at around two metres with the hopes that it will branch where I cut it, as a Kiepersol or Beaucarnia or Coryline does.
Thanks

Suggestions/Questions / soil for bagged plants
« on: December 27, 2006, 23:42:42 PM »
I have recently started propagating a large variety of plants that I will be selling on a wholesale basis. My plant medium is a mixture of good compost, Malmesbury sand and decomposed straw taken from horses stables. To this I add organic, slow release fertilizer made from chicken manure.
Any comments or advise on the above will be appreciated.
