Six on Saturday 4 January 2020

I’ve been watching and enjoying the Propagator and followers for some time now, and with encouragement and IT help from Jim Stephens here we go.

  1.  Grevillea victoriae

2.  Banana.  Supposed to be outside in the garden but I felt sorry for it and brought it in.  It stands under a skylight and has put on four huge new leaves.  It is in danger of being a hazard to navigation.2FCBD668-8A93-4349-B274-090FE8F05CB3

3.  Greenery.  A little corner of my foliage area which has looked a fresh green all year.  No shortage of green in Cornwall.

4.  Grevillea semperflorens

5.  Acanthus ‘Hollard’s Gold’.  This is bigger than it looks, a good 2ft tall and more across and putting up new leaves.  I’ve grown it for years in other gardens, and always been on the verge of chucking it for lack of performance.  It is now a keeper.

6. Pseudopanax colensoi.  I’ve no idea when this is supposed to flower but it’s doing its stuff now.  As I walked around the corner I could hear the buzzing as next door’s bees are gorging.  It is a handsome, fast evergreen.  Quite flexible and always looks smart.  Much to recommend.
