Palm trees are popular picks for London gardens, with varieties that are suitable for the UK climate, especially with the rise in temperatures during summer. Demand for Palm trees has risen, becoming a mainstay in the broad range of Trees that Boma stocks. Some varieties, such as Trachycarpus fortunei (Chusan palm), can also withstand cold temperatures during winter. The garden centre in Kentish Town offers local London delivery and advice on planting, suitability and tree care.

The ideal time for planting trees in the garden starts at the end of September and lasts until April. Trees benefit hugely by being planted in autumn as this helps them establish a root system over autumn into winter before heat stress becomes a problem at the end of spring.
