|This sums up Christmas at Pankhurst towers...
Anyway onto festive stuff and I thought I would come up with my own rendition of the 12 days of Christmas as a I figured Steven is probably still stressing about what to buy me so here is an aspirational list of things anyone can get me for the garden in 2013
On the first day of Christmas my true love bought for me
A parakeet in a Scheffera macrophylla tree: This is still the must have for all tropical garden enthusiasts as it is so tropical looking, unique and rare (I still think you can only get it from Crug for about £100+) I’ve only asked for 1 as I’m not convinced how easy they are to grow...I did have one and used to gaze at its large svelt leaves, however it suddenly died in may a couple of years ago. I also think Will Giles’s one died suddenly...so 1 will be enough, thank you! Parkeet wise I’m also doing ok as they are continuing to spread across the UK and how regular visitor in the garden
3 completely hardy Cyathea medularis....the love for tree ferns continues and I have a feeling that my heartbreak this winter will be for killing yet another Cyathea medualris. I think I mainly killed one last year from it drying out, so fingers crossed this year it will survive in the greenhouse. I was also inspired from posts from a Dutch gardener about his surviving outside.
