Mate, you've got some seriously good material in your collection. I'd love to bring a trailer down sometime. :-? Pity you live so far away. :cry:

Hi Taffyman i collect trunks not just trees or plants .I look at 50-100 trees and plants before i dig 1of the species i'm after , 95% of my collection is top quality and unusual and the rest is very ordinary . All the olives have there own style , the next collected olives with be even better hopefully with 12 inch trunks not tuber bases . I can always send them via Aussie Post , maximum of 600mm high or a courier is required for larger material. Cheers
