Record warmth in May and privacy rules

Butia and Jubaea at Nursery De Groene Prins

The record warmth of last May brings the fact home to us: our climate is getting warmer. This inspired me to once again plant some South American palms in the open ground:

Butia eriospatha and Jubaea chilensis

These strong feathery palms provide an even more tropical effect than the fan palms. They also grow much better in the ground than in a tub! We will protect these with tunnel arches and greenhouse foil. Insulation is achieved with bubble wrap. In a severe frost, a fan heater will keep the temperature around zero degrees.

Winter’s here!

winter at Nursery De Groene Prins
Half hardy plants like Dicksonia antarctica do need good protection against severe frosts in the winter!

Here we have protected our plants against the winter’s cold. We started with the mountain banana collection. After that the tree ferns and last but not least, the palm trees.

During the winter months we’re open by appointment only(+31-6-22370001)!
