Founded in 1991, the European Palm Society have been championing the growing of palms and other exotic plants in Europe and other Temperate areas of the world.
The European Palm Society (EPS) is affiliated to the International Palm Society and is a non-profit organisation dedicated to sharing information about palms and other exotic plants across the continent of Europe. We recognise that many other areas of the world experience similar climatic conditions to those in Europe and we also therefore welcome sharing the experiences and knowledge of members all around the globe.
The main goal of the EPS is to communicate with other enthusiasts through our journal 'Chamaerops', this website or personally via society meetings, in order to share ideas and knowledge of the successful cultivation and study of exotic plants. Above all the EPS is run by members, for members, and we cannot survive without that support and participation.
So, what can you do on the website?
Visit our News page to see latest information about the society.
Browse the online archive of our journal Chamaerops - a wealth of information on palms and other exotic plants.
After a lot of work behind the scenes we have now created a mobile version of the site which we have been testing out and felt it was ready to make the first live release today. It won't have all the full bells and whistles of the regular site and to make it work with the operating systems of mobile and tablet devices the layouts and the way some of the functionality has to work will always be different to the desktop site but I hope you like it!
