Hi everyone, I’ve been here a while but never posted much just taking advice from posts and admiring other gardens and palm collections! I’ve been working on my garden now for 4 years, when we purchased the property it was full of dead almond trees and we had to get a tractor in to clear the plot and access the house. It’s still very young garden and being so big it takes some doing but I’m hoping it will start to fill in as it matures. I thought I would load some photos as it is now. If you would like to see the progress I have an Instagram account dedicated to gardening which is TropicalGardenSpain.
Would love people to comment what palms I am missing here! Climate zone 10a we don’t have frosts but temperatures can drop briefly to 0c for an hour or 2 coldest nights in winter but days can be up to 15-20c and we have dry winters and summers. Watering the garden and keeping on top of it is the toughest jobs and one I will be tackling this year!
Saw these available last Summer from Jeff.
I bought a 1 gallon and planted it straight away from the mail into the ground. Loved FULL Vista sun and not so much the cold last Winter.
I'm not sure what it will actually look like mature. Pictures I found on Internet are not very good.
Others growing this please post info and pictures so I can see one grown up. Here is mine 1 Winter down going into a second.
ICYMI, TommyTonsberg [https://twitter.com/TommyTonsberg] publicado increíbles imágenes de la estación de tren de Atocha en Madrid, España. ¡Impresionantes plantaciones de palmas! Incluso tiene una planta de banano fructificante.[Tommy Tonsberg posted amazing images of the Atocha Rail Station in Madrid, Spain. Awesome palm plantings! Even has a fruiting banana plant.]
Now that the Dorne storyline is (presumably) over, I'll miss those great views of the palms in the water gardens of the 10th-century Alcázar Palace in Seville, Spain. It was used in HBO's Game of Thrones for the rulers of the House Martell.
I went to Gran Canaria back in April 2015, and I took a few pictures of palm trees with my bad-quality smartphone. Here are some of my photos (plus a bonus landscape picture):
I'm not sure of the palm species in picture number 5 (the palm in the central part of the photo), anyone could help me please?
