Turning my dream into a reality

Having seen it in person, I can say that the pictures don't do it justice.  Nice work, @Hferrell87!

Quick question, where do you get a S. sancona In FL, let alone huge as in the photo? Really love plumose palms for some reason…

The only place I could find them at this size was Redland Nursery in Homestead, FL. They have a field full of these beauties! The trees were very heavy to install, as the soil it grew in down there was clay like.

Been a bit since I last updated with pictures, but here are a couple. Been working on irrigation for the field and starting the process of ordering/building a cold frame.

The Syagrus sancona looks interesting.  Up in the Colombian mountains, it seems.  Also the Butias.  For a very long time, all the pindos in the Southeast seemed almost identical, while in Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Argentina there seem to be lots of possibly better plants.  Sabal minor still seems badly neglected for landscaping, though happy ones tend to be a bit big for today's mini yards.   

Bamboos can be pretty charismatic.  Clumps with fairly open stems light up nicely at night.

Looking great!  I see from previous posts you were working on Textilis, Oldhamii and Chungii.  What other bamboo have you planned?  I recently planted Bambusa Chungii, Eutuldoides Viridi-Vittata (Asian Lemon), Guangxiensis (Chinese Dwarf), Lako, Maligensis (Seabreeze), Tuldoides "Swollen Internode," Vulgaris Wamin (regular and striata), and Dendrocalamus Hamiltonii, Latiflorus, Maroochy, Maximuslamina and Minor Amoenus (Ghost), and Gigantochloa "Bali White Stripe."  There's at least 20 more types that would grow well in the Central Florida area.

Some update pictures and new plantings, including Sabal Lisa, Kentiopsis Oliviformis and Foxy Lady. Bambusa Oldhamii is shooting some nice sized culms this year!

How very auspicious!   Is your spot north of town?

First time I’ve seen this thread.  Fantastic progress!  I went to school at Stetson so your thread brought back some great memories.  I’m betting the blind pig is still there :lol: 

Keep up the great works!  It really seems to be developing nicely!

Hey, our nursery is on the south end of DeLand. And you bet the Blind pig is still there! I appreciate your kind remarks.

      I went to Kew Gardens for my birthday on Tuesday 22nd September. 
      A great chance to check out the gardens and the fantastic glass houses, of which several were unfortunately closed due to the pandemic. Nonetheless, plenty of palms and exhibits were still on display and in their full glory on a beautiful sunny autumn/fall day here at 51N in southeastern England. The air temperature was around 27C / 80F at the time of visiting. Conditions are very dry at present as we have had no rainfall at all during September so far, and only around 4-5 inches of rain over the past 6 months, since 1st March. 
      Here is a photo-documentation of the gardens, glass houses and the various palms located within. The first of several posts...


















       
      Unfortunately some of the attractions and glass houses were closed due to the pandemic, although the main couple were still open. Please excuse me for not naming each palm individually...



















      Crossing on to the temperate glass house...

      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!!!

      @palmsOrl and myself went over to Largo to see @SWFLchris's operation.  Chris had a large selection of palms that aren't available in your typical big box outlets.  I picked up two Carpentaria acuminata seedlings and a Cryosophila warscewiczii to add to my landscape.  @palmsOrl posted his plunder on this thread in the Discussion forums:
      https://www.palmtalk.org/forum/index.php?/topic/64208-new-palms-a-floribunda-order-and-a-trip-to-see-chris/
      Some of the inventory for this nursery is listed here:
      https://tampa.craigslist.org/pnl/grd/d/largo-rare-palms-huge-selection-of-1/7126808922.html
      A few of my Tampa area friends like @RedRabbit and @Chatta will be happy to know that there is at least one nursery in West Central FL where they can pick up some goodies.  If you're in the Tampa region or don't mind driving over, give Chris a holler.  Highly recommended!

      I schlep through my neighborhood often because I'm one of those dog walkers twice a day.  Yesterday and today I did something a little different, donning a custom made face mask, I took a real camera with me to take some photos of some of the neighbor's homes.  So are a few of the homes I walk by regularly and I skipped quite a few only because eventually the dog got thirsty and I didn't bring her water bottle.  First stop was the park and Lake Leucadia.  Did I mention it rained a little here the last few days?
