This was a really good meeting and tour. Stosh has done an amazing amount of work and has some great palms. But, alas, I got lazy and didn't take any pictures.
Just to test the photo upload feature, I'll post a photo I just took yesterday of some of my Clinostigmas. I think the species is C. harlandii.
What a difference, and in relatively short time! I am particularly impressed with that hole you dug. Would you be willing to attach your excellent map with the palm species too?
Here are some pictures showing the property in 2006 before I began planting the palm garden and in the first years after.
In order they are: South lawn looking E. before palms./South lawn looking west first palms/S. lawn looking north, first kings/S.lawn looking E. next palms/South lawn looking west today
E. lawn first palms/E. lawn today
N. lawn first hole/N. lawn first palm (Dypsis cabadae)/N. lawn in 2011/Closeup of N. lawn today
It was a really great interactive experience. People were gathered around maps or around a palm discussing various aspects. My favorite story was about the Metroxylon that defied belief and grew back after it was cut down. The growing point in this species reaches almost to the ground and so will regenerate if not cut at ground level. As shown in the first photo.
