Shoowow Posted June 13, 2015 Report Share Posted June 13, 2015 Hello all! I'm brand new to this forum and I'm writing from the São Miguel in the Azores, where I have moved from Boston a few months ago. I'm a native from the island and always loved palms and other tropicals. I have bought a property that my wife and I are turning into a lodging facility and there's plenty of room for plantings. Right now we have two huge Washingtonias on the property. Not a big fan, but I plan to include several Kentias and bamboo palms by the pool. Just planted a couple of dragon trees in front of the house as well. We have bananas, guavas, cherimoyas, avocados, loquats and coffee plants on the property, besides oranges and peaches. I've seen several discussions on the forums about the climate here and I can tell you it's very stable. It seldom drops below 50 or rises over 80. Plenty of rain and humidity. So, perfect for many palms. If you want to know anything about the island vegetation and the types of palms found here, just let me know. I can also post photos. 2 São Miguel, Azores, 37N, Zone 11B, Elevation 110m, Yearly average 18c (64F), Record low 4c (40F), Record high 30 (86F) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
