Palm Trees - UK
Palms in Garden Design
No other tree symbolises the tropics more than the palm tree. Commanding attention, it is the very architecture of an exotic garden.The very word palm invokes images of rainforests, tropical islands, white sand beaches and distant sun soaked lands.They maybe single trunk or clump forming, fan or feather leaved, but all of them are magnificent.
The palm tree is a queen amongst trees and essential to any exotic and tropical garden design and invaluable in a contemporary garden design. Whilst the majority are tropical in origin and far too tender, there are thankfully a few cold hardy species which stand severe frost.The palm tree commonly known as the windmill palm is one of the most hardy. Taking snow and ice in its stride, it can be reliably grown in most parts of the UK. Depending on where you live in the country there are even more unusual exotic species of palm which we can include in our designs with the micro climate of inner London offering the widest choice. We can advise.
