Palm planting work in a Park

Recommended Posts

Kris

Dear Friends,

Iam meeting you all after a small gap.Here in this thread i will post visuals of palm planting work carried out with my collection of palms.

they were planted in a govt park nearby to our house,which is hardly one far-long.For many years i have been trying to get permission to plant palm trees in local parks but found it difficult to make contact with the concerned authorities.

3 months back we have sever floods due to rain and many parks are in bad shape as most of the plants have decayed due to rain water stagnation etc.So the govt has started improving and started planting new saplings and also have allowed the public to contribute to the park improvement.

i took this opportunity to get permission to plant few palms from our collection,which had out grown its pot size...due lack of garden space with me.

From the following post you will have visuals of that planting work..

Love,

Kris.

Thanks very much friends for your kind and encouraging words,And Dear Antonio i do not know the name of that plant.you could be right.

Thanks & Love,

Kris.

BTW the palm planting work in this park is not yet over,i intend posting stills as and when we plant new palms there.And also i would update their status every 6 or 8 months.since the soil is clayey and area get only filtered sunlight(semi shade).I assume the growth rate could be a bit slow.

Looks great. I remember when you started sprouting some of these. I just hope the guys who mow the grass don't run some of the smaller ones over before they have a chance to grow. Looking forward to your updates.

Dear Lucas here we still chop the grass using long blades and its not mechanized yet.But still i will inform the chief gardner 

there to be little careful while cutting the grass.

Dear Peter i know that borassus flabellifer is your favorite palm,will try to get permission to plant at least one of those palms.

since initially they said they do not want phoenix and borassus palms there.

Dear Konstantinos thanks for the appreciation my friend.

Thanks & Love,

Kris.

Fantastic Kris!! Its great to see you be able to share your passion with your own neighborhood! I echo SIr RedBeards worry. Maybe a Large rock or two placed near the sendlings can ward off errant cutting??

 

Party on Kris!!

 And Borassus Flabellifer (Robust form) fondly called as Big Mama,this palm i have planted since our forum member smile

And here's a visual of those two palms...

      I came across this nice sized Corypha utan on Saturday. It is growing in Rockledge (just south of Cocoa) in a yard facing the western shore of the Indian River lagoon. It has some cold damage but I think more of the damage maybe from wind/salt spray from Hurricane Irma. There are Adonidia/Cocos/Hyophorbe/Veitchia nearby with minimal damage. A Livistona decora is to the right for scale.

      I hope @Hillizard doesn't mind me borrowing this photo of his for this post  He was at the Osher Rainforest exhibit in San Francisco when he took this photo. He was not able to get an i.d. at the exhibit. The photos were posted in @Jdiaz31089's palms of San Fran thread where I asked the palm's i.d. but there were no answers. Does anyone here know?
      Is it a Mauritia species? Is it Sabal mauritiiformis? It's certainly not a Corypha, right?

      In our intercontinental PRA last week ( see Ohana Nui subforum) in Peradeniya botanic gardens I noticed thanks to Ahamed this palm and wonder which species it can be? Corypha utan?
      Strangely I don't remember having seen this tree in the previous visits!

      I haven't been able to find much on growing the more massive fan palms (mostly Borassus and Corypha) in Mediterranean climates.  Many know of the Corypha in Bird Rock, San Diego, but does anyone know of other attempts.  There's a big Borassus at the Zoo, and it's thriving.  Here's some updated pics.  I germinated a few C. utan in the Spring, and they are already pushing their fourth leaf.  Faster than all of my other seedlings.  Soon, I'll probably plant one.

      Dear Friends,
      I welcome you all to another palm planting work,And this time its my favorite palm "Corypha Macropoda Palm". Like always we dug up the soil about 3feet
      x 3feet by 3feet depth since our garden soil is just clayey. All our palms had grown well in washed river sand.So this time we just filled the pit only with coarse grade sandy soil,little bit of coarse grade perlite,And some neem composite since i have here termite and fire ants problem.visuals of that work can be seen in following post.And i call this operation as "Operation Sandy".Once the palm stabilizes in its new home,we will feed it with nutrients.
      And my special thanks to my ranch hand,without who's help this entire work would not have been possible.
      Thanks and Love,
      Kris.
