Le Jardin Secret (2) - palm planting

In September 2014 we planted the date palms (Phoenix dactylifera) and set out the grid lines for the Citrus and Olive tree planting in the Islamic garden.  The palms were all moved and lifted by man power only, no machinery involved.  The palms were inched up vertically using scaffolding planks, rope and timber poles.  A team of twenty people were involved to plant the tallest 5m palm.
