Striking palm with arching, feather-like, blue-green leaves, originating from South America. It is proving pretty hardy when mature in the UK, though young plants will need winter protection with a fleece jacket. Excellent as a container plant for the patio.

Hardy Palm (Hardy to -5C when mature)
Height: 4-5m
Position: Full sun in well drained soil

Packet of 10 seeds



 Pre-sowing Treatment: Soak the seeds for 10 days changing the water twice a day.

Sowing Instructions: Sow at any time of the year. Sow individually in small pots or a tray of moist seed compost mixed 50:50 with vermiculite. The seeds should be half buried lengthwise. Seal pots in a polythene bag and place in a propagator or other warm place (eg. on a windowsill above a radiator). Maintain an optimum temperature of 30C during the day and 20C at night. Germination can be erratic but should take place in 1-3 months.

Growing Instructions: As the seedlings emerge, gradually increase ventilation by opening the propagator vents or the polythene bag. Grow the seedlings on, re-potting as necessary and protect from frost for the first couple of winters. Harden off completely before planting out in a sunny, sheltered position away from strong winds which can tear the leaves. Protect with bubble wrap and/or a fleece jacket for the first few years and in very cold temperatures.
