Hi Ash - thanks for the heads up about the Cairns show. Just wondering do you have any tips with regards to growing JBP in the tropics?

Hi Tony - I was wondering about how those pines of Norma's were going. The last time I saw her (last year)she was afraid that her JBPs would die if they were in full tropical sun. So she kept them under some pretty dense shade! I'm someone must have convinced her to give them some sun if they're still alive now. How much is she asking for them because Jak was looking for a tree.

Hey Woody

I have tried to convince her also to get her Pines into more sun as they are not performing as they could with more sun. The needles are too long and not enough back budding when in that much shade. I will see if that has changed soon, and try again if not.

No idea what she is charging for them.
