Post Trip to Plant base
We visited Graham last Sunday. It was a loooong drive but totally worth it. I have bought plants from him before but you don’t realise what treasures he has till you visit his nursery. In my garden I have the usual tropical plants like Trachy, Butia, Chamaerops, treeferns, etc but I have a special interest in South African and Australian / New Zealand/Tasmanian plants.

Here is a list of what I bought :

PLANT BASE -November 2017

- cussonia sphaerocephala
- hakea victoria
- aulax cancellata
- calothamnus validus
- grevillea leucopteris
- banksia media prostrate form
- banksia serrata
- banksia canei
- melaleuca trichophylla
- melaleuca squarosa
- melaleuca hypericifolia
- gompholobium scabrum
- callistemon viridifius
- acacia victoriae
- regelia velutina
- casuarina cunninghamiana
- pultenaea juniperina
- psoralea fleta
- isopogon anemonifolius
- pittosporum dallii
- bossiaea scolopendria
- cotyledon orbiculata
- manfreda elongata
- daviesia pectinata

Good heavens Maya ... that was a long drive :shock: I thought Oxford to Bangor (Crug farm plants) was forever. Still I'm glad you enjoyed it and you have come away with some amazing plants. When you get the chance please post some pics :D

While being deeply impressed by your endurance-driving skills, the pedant in me is compelled to point out that not one of these is a tropical plant. Arguably Butia, I suppose...

There are two approaches, depending on whether you have a hosting account with (for example) Flickr.

If not, just click on the "add image to post" link at the lower right hand corner of the text box, browse to where you have the photo saved locally and resize sensibly when uploading it to postimage.org. Your post will include a thumbnail that can be clicked to open the full-sized photo in a new window.

If so, paste the URL of your photo at your online hosting account into your post, highlight it and click the "Img" box above the text box. This will embed the photo in your post.

Use the "preview" function liberally, to make sure everything is in the right location and at the right size, before posting.

Maya,

That's a good list of plants.
A long drive, but seems well worth it.

I met Graham earlier in the year at a RHS show in London
Bought a few Proteas off him. Would have bought a lot more, but was travelling home on the train :roll:

David, thank you for the helpful info regarding the photo upload.
I should have said exotic plants :)
