Default Collection inspection...

As any of the UK members on here will agree, the weather in the UK lately has been a bit severe. Luckily for me I live up in the hills and haven't had any flooding, but the wind and rain have been awful. I haven't been down to inspect the Neos for nearly 3 weeks as a 120' tall Lime tree is about ready to fall at any moment at the end of the garden.

I had to bite the bullet today, the sun was out and the temp in the greenhouse got to 27 degrees c and they were all looking a little sad! Only 2 plants lost which is still sad, but not as bad as I thought it was going to be! they had their first bath of the year (normally the first bath is at the end of March to mid April).

I agree with previous messages, you have an impressive collection! Do you have more pictures to show? any flickr account of similar to show your beauties. Some look like fantastic specimen plants!
