    How much room do I give the tree fern trunk to outside of pot, also how much deeper do I go. Is I right , you can give them too much room around the trunk ? Is there a guide to gauge the surrounding of the trunk?

    My home has very poor lighting from my windows and inside my home can you recommend a light that will help me with my succulent plants? I found one on Amazon

    I’ve just purchased and sited 2 Dicksonia Antarctica, both 6’ trunks.
    They look great but would like to somehow ‘train’ the fronds that are approx 8’ in length! They are slightly exposed and the wind and rain is effecting them a little more than I expected. Is there a tried and tested method of retaining their shape in a more erect style? I am contemplating creating a rubber coated wire ‘crown’ to the top of the trunk to provide an anchor point for each frond – I personally think this would work but any advice would be much appreciated. As you can imagine, these weren’t cheap so would like to have them displayed at their best potential. Thanks. Dan

    Succulents, as they don’t like being over watered, what about autumn and winter where nature takes over. They are in well drained soil, also do they need fleece protection because of frosts and freezing snow ?
