in the Exotic Garden Alan & Carol Hawes
Dyed-in-the-wool palm freaks will probably freak out at the very
idea of flowers but don't throw up your hands in horror. A little
colour goes a long way and can certainly add to the exotic effect
we are all seeking.
Armata! Jon Kenahan
Brahea armata to be precise, and a wonderful specimen that is alive
and well in Sussex, in south UK. The story of its progress is lovingly
told by Jon who would not submit the piece until he was confident
of its continuing success. Wish I'd thought of the title.
Jubaea Michel Lambreghts
An excellent 'How to' article, this time about the tricky business
of germinating the seeds of our biggest palm, Jubaea chilensis,
together with the very best Jubaea photo I've ever seen.
and Hungry Palms Gary Parker
We all know that many palms hate dry air but why? Much that Gary
has written about was, I must admit, new to me, and I'm delighted
to pass it on. Appropriate for the time of year, too.
