Palms plants are synonymous with exotic locations and holidays away on gorgeous sunny beaches. However, there are many hardy palm trees available which are ideal for the UK's temperate climate. This means that you can easily grow these exotic looking specimens in your own garden, enabling you to bring a bit of holiday luxury to your own home.
One of the best ways to grow outdoor palm trees is in pots, with their slow growth and compact size, making it easy to move them around the garden or patio to green up any spot. Most palm tree plants are hardy down to around -5/6ºC and so will survive most British winters. However, growing them in pots will allow you to move plants into sheltered garages, sheds or greenhouses if you're worried about losing your beloved specimens, and by utilising fleece covers, you can ensure that your palm plants are protected at all times.
YouGarden offers the wonderful Canary Island Date Palm (Phoenix canariensis) in two sizes, allowing you to buy the ideal specimen to suit your space. These hardy palm tree plants have a short growing period between the middle of May and the end of the August, making feeding and watering at this time crucial.
If you're looking to brighten up your garden and create a slightly exotic ambiance, then buying palm plants is the perfect way to get that holiday feel. YouGarden's palms will not only look great throughout the year, but offer than extra garden luxuriousness that you're looking for.
