New fire thorn
« on: October 22, 2009, 11:44 AM »
It is finally evergreen collection time here. This is a fire thorn that I have had my eyes on for a few months.
By the look of the bark and the size compared to others I think it is very old maybe 60 years?
It is one of the best I have ever collected anyway.

I don't think the pics do it justice the bark is very old looking for a fire thorn

Thanks Chris. I have collected two before this one late Winter and one early spring. Both seeem fine but this one was taken at what is meant to be te best time late spring so fingers crossed it should be fine.

It certainly seems to have recovered from collection.  Just wondering, whats with the bamboo(??) lining the inside of the pot?

It certainly can't compare to the Bundy rum ;)

The Bundy is good stuff but I won't let myself drink that when I go out anymore it always seems to get me in trouble :o

The pot ended up being a bit shallow Bwayne so the bamboo was added to allow more soil :)
