Growing Palms eBook

This ebook explains how best to grow this magnificent plants to stand out as a centrepiece in any garden. 


eBook coverGrowing Palms and Palm Like Plants

by John Mason

Growing Palms eBook course online. Palms and palm-like plants are mostly grown as structural plants. They add stunning shapes into a garden and for that reason alone, stand out and capture our attention, making a garden more interesting. Palms can be more than just architectural forms though; providing shade, colour and texture to a garden. If you choose an appropriate species, they are great indoor plants.

Palms are commonly thought of as either tropical or indoor plants. While many palms come from warmer climates and are often grown indoors this is not really an accurate assumption.

These plants occur naturally across a wide range of climates, both temperate and tropical, from wet rainforests to arid deserts.

This book explores the diversity of species, the differences in appearance, and the way in which different species might be cultivated.
