    Lucky! I wish that England was tropical/subtropical. It's really humid here, however the temperatures can get very cold in winter, but not too cold because I live in the South-East. The best place to have a greenhouse in the UK would probably be Scilly because it is influenced more by the Gulf Stream, so although it may have slightly colder summers than the South-East, it has much warmer winters, so you can grow phoenix canariensis outdoors all year.

    I had a phoenix canariensis pop up on the corner of my property. They are horribly weedy in the low lands near the coast, provided they get water. Dunno, maybe global climate change will help you. It has been the warmest summer on record. 5 degrees F higher than all previous years.
