Looks like a scene out of a Rudyard Kipling story "In the wild jungles of Borneo . . there sat a chair".

I've been trying to figure out if that's a tree or Drew's totem in the background.

it's an 8' totem. I need to splice another on. The roots are growing into the ground now and it is a 45 gallon pot. I sure would love for one (or all you guys) to come get it and the Maximum and the Giganteum. just getting to big for the house and I do not want them to die over the Winter. There is no more space in the garage except for Miliies' side....Yeah Right!!!!!

Yep, my truck's not big enough either. Then I'd get home and have to give it one of my oak trees to climb up . . .

You're sure your HOA wouldn't let you just . . extend . . your garage about 20ft. with a nice glass roof? You really do deserve a nice big greenhouse.

Holy huge plant! I would like to sit out there and watch Jurassic Park (again, yeah, mostly to see the foliage.) Wouldn't that be especially powerful?

TY for sharing!

Drew,
Is there a Botanical Garden or even a College near you with a good horticultural program that you could donate it too ? Then you could still visit it.

Or....There are Greenhouse owners who do "Winter Care", maybe there is one near you. Course you'd have to get it to them. And they'd have to have space.
It's a shame for you to have to give them up with all the effort and care you've put into them.

I really do wish I could come get them !!

I agree with mj, I think any Botanical Gardens or Conservatory would be most grateful to have your beautiful plants that you don't have space for! I don't know what city you are in but there are a few Botanical Gardens in N.C.

UNC in Chapel Hill: http://ncbg.unc.edu/directions/

Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh: http://www.visitraleigh.com/listings/J-C-Raulston-Arboretum-...


Maybe Plants Delight Nursery http://www.visitraleigh.com/listings/Juniper-Level-Botanic-G... would take them and you could get smaller plants in trade?

UNC in Charlotte: https://gardens.uncc.edu/

Here's a list of many botanical gardens in the state: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_botanical_gardens_and_a...
