Cocos Nucifera in zone 9b?

16 years ago

Hello,

My favourite palm has always been the coconut palm and I have recently discovered that it is growing in Ruskin, FL and Brownsville, TX! I know in the UK, we are famous for rain, but I have been looking at the MET office and found that our winter min. temps are the same as subtropical climes (hooray)! The average min temp is -3.8 degrees C and the max temp is 21.1 degrees C. With warming cables, well drained soil partially covered to avoid waterlogging and horticultural fleece to insulate, will it be possible to grow a coconut palm in England?

Thanks,

James
