    Eucalyptus in trouble

    Not sure, give the bark a scrape at the bottom and see if it is still green.I'm wondering if they are dying up wards, if you get my meaning.I think these have a Limited life in pots any way.

    My Musa Banana Plant is a mess!

    Leave the leaves on until it's made some more decent sized ones.I only cut off leaves that are pretty much dead.

    Hardy Palm Suggestion?

    Don't go for a massive one to start with, at £30 per foot you'll need at least a 3 footer for a decent show - a lot of money in my book.

    Chamaerops planting and questions.

    Well it is definitely growing nicely, has thrown out loads of new growth on the top, and has been suckering since I posted this - although no doubt this will wind down as winter approaches! Cheers!
