The Growing Palms and Palm Like Plants ebook is a wonderful companion help you understand more about growing palms and palm-like plants.

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