A Palm from Tenerife Growing Outdoors in the UK for 16 Years

By Canarius

This video by HTUKDave shows the life History of a Washingtonia Palm,  from seed collection in 1992 to November 2009: 16 years.

Seeds came from the Canary Islands. They were collected by a hotel in South Tenerife in 1992. This Washingtonia robusta palm has grown in Chalk, Kent for 16 years, and survived various snowstorms and even a blizzard in Feb 2009. Although badly damaged the palmtree has recovered fully over the following summer.

Not all palms are tropical plants. Many palm species can resist snow and frost. Come and visit our shop at . We offer above 100 palm species and will ship to your home.
