Ok, perhaps me telling him to leave the forum was a bit harsh. He's the one who brought it up though.

Well, anyway, palms have no place in cities like London, Amsterdam or Copenhagen. Or NI like in the photo I posted!
Several palms can naturalize in London, whereas I doubt they can in Copenhagen.

Palms are just another exotic tree in London, and the world would be a sadder place if there were no exotic trees - couldn't imagine my area without my beloved apple tree, or 10 ft sativas.

And it is to me.

How's that any different to everyone on here not from the UK saying that the UK has no summer, or that it rains a lot, or that it's usually overcast?

UK compared to others Islands at same latitude around of the World is a Paradise,in both Summer and Winter imo.

Examples:

London has the best climate in the world of anywhere above 49-50N. Portsmouth would be 2nd.

Trachys and cordylines are naturalised here. CIDPs will be next, they are fairly common in gardens as it is.

Having 38% possible sunshine year-round means that it IS a rather overcast climate. How is that so hard for you to wrap your head around?


Anyways, I haven't seen anyone say that in a long ass time. And the ones that do, are not even regulars and are mostly random morons that somehow find their way on here.



You're way oversensitive when it comes to London's climate. Like it personally affects you or something. Lol.


Anyways, being a weather enthusiast and calling 0 C "bitterly cold" is stupid. That's something I would expect a random moron to say. And to only be 4 C colder than London yet London is mild and NYC is "bitterly cold" makes no sense. So 4-5 C is the only difference between bitterly cold and mild?

He has a point though. Saying London has no summer is absolutely no different to saying NYC has bitterly cold winters. Both are stupid things to say.
