Since this place is a park,where many Kids and ladies do visit.To add some colour to the greenery,we have
planted the desert rose (Adenium).

Thirukkural(Poetry) written by Thiruvalluvar(a saint Poet).For more info on Thirukkural you can visit the link given below..

Recently they have added 2 new toilets,made of stainless steel and it cleans itself on every use.i.e its mechanized and needs electric power to operate. these resemble more like the ones we seen in modern trains.guys are standing there reading instructions how to use and which button to press to open the door.

Great work! It's nice to see you have an opportunity to see you plant your palms in a public place where they'll grow and mature for years to come. The Thrinax radiata is an interesting one to see being planted. I bet that'll do very well in your location.

I am impressed by the beautiful work you do. Gladly childrens in India know which plant is poison.

In Switzerland politicians believe children are stupid so we can't plant ornamental species which can be dangerous,

Google "Nerium in Geneva" or "lauriers roses à Genève" you'll see.
In your park you have Plumeria and Adenium, lovely!  :)

Dear Philippe,

All kids are alike,but here the kids are mostly accompanied by their parents,elders or attenders..they are never left alone to do anything naughty ! :winkie:

Tomorrow i have planned to plant one  Arenga engleri and 2 Phoenix hybrids of (P.Reclinata x Dacty x Roebellini x Rupicola).

These were palms raised from fresh seeds sent to me by Bro.M@x,Italy.

Kris, i am impressed about your work there. But could you elaborate about which conection do you have to the park? 

I am really looking forward to check some incoming updates on this thread, as the growth rate is supposed to be great overthere!

I also would like to see some updates of your palms, at your place ^_^:interesting:

Ignoring the risk of being repetitive and boring, keep planting spots of those hybrids remote from kids. Reclinata hybrids and generally Phoenix hybrids I fear are distinguished through formidable spines on petioles, really scary ones! Here' s an example, on the left regular reclinata spines, on the right hybrid reclinata spines

Dear Rafael will surely post stills of the progress these palms make. Dear Konstantinos thanks for your concern,And i have taken note of it. The planting that are being done is in a area where general public(children & Adults) are not allowed to enter.And its entry gate to this part of the park is locked.Since there are water motors, entire park and pathways lighting control switches and the gardener's store room,etc..And it also houses Dicot trees and grass lawn in this area. And watering the plants,cleaning the dried leaves(Maintenance Work) all takes place only during non visiting hours.i.e during that time the main gates to the park are closed.only during that time the lawn area gate is opened.Once my planting work is over even i will not be able to accesses this area.But could take stills from a distance using DSLR camera.But now all the stills are shot using my Mobile phone since iam very close to the object(Palms).

Thanks and Love,

Kris.

My only concern is they water the garden daily and they almost flood the area...my plants have decayed and in peak of summer when water is scarce they do not water at all..And i was told the water used is chlorinated.

I do not know wheather my palms could handle these extremes in watering ! :mellow: And the entire park is in semi shade area due to Dicot trees surrounding it.

Your work is amazing, and your selflessness for donating all of those palms after all the work you have put into growing them is awesome.

I also like how healthy and big some of those palms got in recycled water bottles! I will definitely be checking back to see your updates.

      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.
