Axel Amsterdam Posted February 2 Report Share Posted February 2 4 minutes ago, Hortulanus said: I wanted to say that. Europe isn't the US. People here aren't so adventurous and curious to try new things. The US also has a larger palm growing culture than Europe in general. Even in the best of climates around the Mediterranean Sea you only see few people trying things that are uncommon. Even Queens are not that common in the South of Europe at least if you compare it to other parts of the world. Europeans also tend to try things just once MAYBE twice and if it failed they say "Ok. It's impossible". Not going much further into why something failed. It's a generalsation but it is what it is... Queens have been planted all over the cote d’azur in the last decade. You can find so many other hidden treasures from Toulon to Menton. Lots of plants in botanical Californian gardens where introduced by European gardeners. Its not Spain with their mono plantings of washies and dactyliferas. Even Italy is pretty mono. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
