Palms near me

Post by lulak10 » Wed Mar 05, 2014 9:05 am

I took this pix about a month ago, but it's taken me a while to get my husband to send them to me as I took them on his phone.

These are all round where I live in Beckenham.

Non - existent here, or my old town,

Here three years ago I passed my local park and saw this.

When summer ended they never got planted again.

No shortage whatsoever for trees here, its more your tubs and hanging baskets not palms. This is a woodland of trees and Bluebells.

Summer may see a palm tree, who knows how council gardeners work.

There's quite a lot round me - the pix of the larger ones, but quite a few gardens have smaller trachies.

I have seen some really nice ones in people's backgardens when I'm on the train into work, but I'll never be able to get pix of them!!! :cry:

Roger - I live in Beckenham, right up by the border with Lewisham. Most of those palms were in the Copers Cope/Kent House area. Whereabouts r u?

My local council has just planted phoenix canariensis in a local park.... it makes me really annoyed, council tax money wasted when they could buy palms that would be perfectly hardy.

I wish that the council would plant some palms of some description in my area, they don't even do it on the coast were CIDPs would be worth a go!
