My palms south of France

13 posts in this topic

hi everyone,

I've been looking into palmtalk for several years now and l learnt a lot in these pages, so it's time to post some pics of my garden. I have an extended collection of cold hardy palms (hybrids, sabals, braheas etc), my garden is in zone 8b, with warm and dry summers, winters are cool and rainy. There is a lot of wind all year long. And I'm also infested with paysandisia archon unfortunately.

Hi Alohas,

Impresse by the palms and garden,nice collection of rare hybrids.

Any winter damage on BxP ,Butiagrus or Syagrus?

What are the usual winter minimal temps in the region,do you use any protection?

thanks guys

 

petrppetrov, no winter damage so far on the palms you're quoting, the lowest they've seen is -7°c (19.4°f) last winter. Winters can be very different from one year to another, even if there are always some freezes. I'm using protection on all of my smaller palms (those pictured above are my biggest, no protection for these). But I have many other hybrids, parajubaeas, livistonas that are little, but went through last winter with only a few burns under winter cloth.
