Tikorangi: Theo and new guitar
The 2010 Tikorangi / Jury family Christmas tree has been variously described as looking like Cousin It and an Ent. You can read all about it’s construction here.
It is Ficus antiarus and it is the most asked about plant in our garden. We used to propagate a few but we realised that while everybody wanted to know what it was, nobody wanted to buy it.

Abbie Jury on Mark’s enthusiasm.
Abbie Jury has been writing for the garden pages of the Taranaki Daily News on a weekly basis for the past 14 years, and contributes to various other gardening publications. Readership surveys by the Daily News rank her highly (of late, second only to the TV critic) for her combination of technical knowledge, an appropriately down to earth approach, wry wit and flowing writing style.
Abbie gardens alongside her husband Mark (himself a plantsman of note and internationally renowned plant breeder) at Tikorangi – The Jury Garden in North Taranaki, New Zealand.
