Would have thought Adelaide would have been warm enough to not need a house for Palms, Daryl. Obviously not. Too cold in winter I guess. Nice photo cheers Gary

Thanks Gary. Yes, it get's a bit too cold in winter for many palms. However, there are some varieties that grow well here such as the Cocos and Date Palm.
Regards, Daryl
