The world most northern palm island in Norway outside the port of Stavanger.
Flor og Fjare is a family business and they had this since 1995
This island is just stunning!!!
As many people know, South Florida has been much warmer than usual over the past few years (summers, winters). Lately there have been many record high lows and high daytime highs.
I have seen graphs showing a general warming trend in Miami over the past 100 years or so...it averages out to 2 or 3 degrees warmer than what it used to be in the early 1900s.
My question is, do you think this is just because of cyclic patterns of warm and cool periods coinciding with urbanization? Or is this a long term trend? I have read about frosts being somewhat frequent at Fairchild in the 70s and now they are very rare if any even occurr in a winter.
What are your experiences in South Florida regarding this warming?
I have noticed many bread fruit trees in my neighborhood, but I also know they grow fast so they probably haven't been around for too many years.
Please share your thoughts or experiences in the garden and weather world from South Florida, I would love to hear them.
I saw these in the thumbnail of a TED Talk video and thought they looked very tropical. They’re some sort of seedling, does anyone know what these are? Are they some sort of garden crop? Video Link: https://youtu.be/mjUsobGWhs8
I just bought a White Bird of Paradise today and have a few questions about it. Could I separate these three plants and pot them up individually without them dying? Also, if I were to plant them into the ground in the spring, could I dig them back up in the fall and pot them up for the winter?
I know this is a common tropical (cold hardy?) looking plant, I remeber seeing them on Hilton Head Island, SC, but I completely forgot what it was called and there was no tag on it (In Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh, PA). What are these called again? How hardy are they?
