Re: Your local Phoenix canariensis_CIDP's

Hi Dave, i know of a house around amsterdam with 3 Phoenix canariensis_CIDP's the size of the ones in your pics from around gravesend. They are in heavily exposed position, so no urban heat effect or buildings around. They turned brown completely but 2 of them recovered rapidly, while the third is d...

Re: Your local Phoenix canariensis_CIDP's

Walking back to work today at lunchtime I passed a gentrified factory with little gardens for the flats. they've had a Phoenix canariensis_CIDP in a beautiful designer pot all summer. Its grown well but is now standing in 6 inches of water. That's not below the pot, but in the pot and it clearly ha...

Re: Your local Phoenix canariensis_CIDP's

Hi Stephen, i actually referred to Phoenix canariensis_CIDP's bought in supermarkets and planted by individuals. If you look at it from a distance (from the Netherlands :>beard<: ), it's actually a nice, almost scientific, grandscale experiment. In a couple of years we may be able to see where the b...

Re: Your local Phoenix canariensis_CIDP's

And this is, i understand, the oldest Phoenix canariensis_CIDP in the Netherlands. According to the story on a dutch forum it's 35 years old and has been through some tuff winters with protection. I haven't seen it myself though. I must say it's not really big for 35 years, but other than that it lo...

Your local Phoenix canariensis_CIDP's

Hi everyone, I am envious at your UK wide Phoenix canariensis_CIDP experiment. By that i mean that i understand that your local DYI stores sold them by the thousands so now you have the possibility to see what they can handle in terms of cold/wind/rain. Here, in the Netherlands there are hardly any ...

Re: Ensete Maurelii still outside unprotected

Hi everybody, my name is Axel, i live in amsterdam and my courtyard has been designed and planted only one year ago. I protected my maurelii by keeping it dry and by putting a spotlight under a fleecewrap during subzero nights. It did very well this year and hopefully will pull through again this wi...
