Palms

Palms for Sale

I have entirely stopped selling palms now. Perhaps one day I will offer a particular species for sale, but that is for the longer term.

I wrote the above after I’d moved north in late 2011.

My view as of late 2021 became this: that day is likely to arrive in 2022. I wish to move on to offer Phoenix dactylifera, the Middle Eastern Date Palm of commerce. They grow quite well in the warmer coastal parts of Aotearoa. Moreover, I’ve lived with a big, old one during the 24 years I was on South Kaipara Head. For evidence of this, click on “About Us” at the top of any page, and then on “Nestlebrae History”.

I am still quite interested in palms generally, and I have lots of them on my current Far North property, but I’ve made no attempt to match the nearly 170 varieties and location types that I had at South Kaipara Head by about 2005.

I do see many things still to admire about the much smaller number of different palms that I have in the Far North.

Here’s what I see outside to my left when I work on updating this website.
