I’m looking to sell this but they have to dig out and take away. It’s 2 story’s high and bulb 2m. How much you reckon? @brightcolours @KathyB

OMG that's going to be some digging!!!!! I have no idea how much to charge! It'd be an amazing statement piece in the right setting!

@KathyB that’s why they can use a dingo or crow bars. Im not digging it out. Lucky they’re shallow rooters.

There’s a site for selling trees shrubs etc. Can’t think of the name but google should find it. Is it easy access for a digger?

@daisy-jane probably not. It’s the centre piece for a border bed which is clay and in full sun. The 2 either side never stop flowering. Totally drought tolerant. Summer snap dragon. Smells like bubblegum.

@daisy-jane Thank you my dear. I’m a bit of a boaster when it comes to some tropical plants. They grow too well sometimes. I took a cutting of devils ivy from mum and dads today. The one I had on gum trees had leaves 2’wide. The council poisoned it along with so much else. They only seemed to kill natives. They’ll be hearing from me soon. I’ll tag you

Boast away Hun I know I would 😄 hope your cutting from your parents garden does well, that's such a shame about your ivy I'd be giving them what for too 😣😘
