Can I grow palm trees in Melbourne?

If you're set on palms, don't sway. Us Victorians may shiver through frigid winters, and swelter during the hot, dry summers, but tropical gardens are still viable. The weather may be unpredictable, but fortunately, palms love it.

Take a walk around your neighbourhood and keep an eye out. You are bound to see dozens of palms soaring above front and back yards. There are 40 species of palms thriving in the Royal Botanical Gardens alone!

What are some good palms to grow in Melbourne's climate?

The palms that will grow the easiest are those that come from exotic locations with similar climates. They should be able to tolerate extreme and moderate frost with ease. Here are some of our favourites:

  • Bangalow palm (Archontophoenix cunninghamiana) — Hailing from the northern coast of NSW, this is one of the country's most popular indoor and outdoor species.
  • Chinese Windmill (Trachycarpus fortunei) — This Chusan palm is native to China, Southern Japan, Northern Myanmar and India. It hates humiditiy, but thrives in Melbourne.
  • European fan palm (Chamaerops humilis) — This screening palm of Mediterranean origin is one of the few palms native to Europe, and can handle cold and wind well.
  • Wine palm (Butia capitata) — This South American palm is one the world's hardiest, and can tolerate cold and drought with relative ease.

How can I create and care for an exotic tropical garden in Melbourne?

Creating your tropical paradise is as easy. First, you need to create a tropical microclimate in your bare backyard. You can do that by following these steps:

  1. Set your soil. It needs to be nutrient-rich and well-draining.
  2. Consider layering. Before you plant, you need to remember that tropical plants grow close together for protection.
  3. Start with a shield. Hardier, wind-tolerant palms will protect delicate tropical plants below.
  4. Retain heat. Stone walls and bricks are excellent insulators against the cold and wind.
  5. Select for style. Once your microclimate is functioning, you can plant an array of lush green foliage punctuated by vibrant flowers.
