@bikoro child:

I have only 10 (bigger) potted plants in my garden, the rest ist planted in the garden soil and stays outside through the winter. The row with the small Taros are not counted by the amount of 10.

I uploaded these pics to the photo gallery, so everyone can have a look at them

Regards,

Alex

Didn't really have the time to plant some of these out, that's why they are still in the pots:

DC unfurling a new leaf:



DC sword pup details:



DC sword pup up for grabs:



Grand Nain pups:


Cold damaged mother plant:


Water Grand Nain pup up for grabs:



Dwarf Brazilian recovering from hail and thunderstorms:



Red pupping instead of growin', maybe needs a bigger pot? 2 pups soon up for grabs:





Comune di Sicilia survivor of the great winter of 2010 (Rip mother plant):



RIP: Raja Puri, Maurelli, basjoos, 10 SDCs, 5 Grand Nains,... Dajiao... all citrus grafts and most of the rootstocks, 286 2y/o palm seedlings of 10 types, many freshly sprouted cacti, some maracujas... most of them due to the extreme cold in the storage room, thanks winter of 2010!

Cheers!

Not quite sure if this is what was intended, but my garden IS a garden. It is intended for
production, not appearance. Anyway, here goes.

My 3 Manzanos are the fastest growers. Largest has 2 pups.


Young Saba, my 2nd fastest grower. 2 pups.


Williams with 4 pups. 2 will be cut to keep them from slowing it down.


The pups. I'll keep the outer two.


Ae Ae. Heavily composted with manure to reduce variegation,
and sun damage.


Dwarf Red with 3 pups.


Hua Moa. The one in back has 3 attached to each other.


Double Mahoi with 2 pups. My slowest grower. May need to cut
the Cassava to give more light.

Little update - we have true English weather here, I have noticed it has rather negative influence for banana growth

You are all amazing, thanks for sharing the pictures - I would never have imagined such success! Now my friend Rolf in Norway has gotten interested - hopefully he can have some fun and some success!
