Palms thrive in UK drought

Palms are now a very common sight in many English gardens and seem to be doing very well in the Autumn heat wave in the South.

Canary Island Palm - Phoenix canariensis

These are impactful plants that  create a Mediterranean or Tropical feel.

There is a wide choice of hardy and not-so hardy varities available from specialist nurseries in the UK . A few  are offering sale prices at the moment which makes this  a good time to take the plunge and invest in an impressive specimen. Prices can range from £30 for a small specimen to over £500 for the larger, more established trees.

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and who is keen to "manage" the effects of shifting weather patterns on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and it has evolved over 12 years to inspire engagement with climate change outside our back doors, in our personal gardens and green spaces. My mission is to fertilise and expand this platform to grow a community of global gardeners communicating about the effects of climate change on our plants and exploring how each individual can make small changes in our lives to become more sustainable. The future of our gardens and #OurPlanet is in our hands - please plant your own seeds for our collective sustainable future.
