I was always interested in the climtic conditions in the S UK and over around Cork to Dublin , where plam trees were planted and flourish in what I consider a less than favorable climate.

I also loved the fact that flowers like jonquils, snowdrops and daffodils would be blooming in January.

I gues the best explanation I got was
"well, our climate isnt so bad, Its not that its so hot that youd thiink "jungle", It is, rather, just never that cold". The Gu8lf Stream moderates the climate of aset of islands that are. in the larger setting, at roughly the latitude s of LAgrador, which is, subarctic.
