This majestic palm is the big daddy of all palms reaching a height of 30m in its native Chile with a huge trunk up to 1m wide.  Thankfully in the UK climate it is much smaller and is also one of the hardiest palm species tolerating temperatures a s low as -12C.  A splendid centrepiece to any garden, the Chilean Wine Palm will grow well in any well drained soil in a sunny or lightly shaded position. 

Hardy Palm (to -12C - protect for first few winters)
Flowers: Summer on mature plants
Height: to about 10m
Position: Full sun or light shade in well drained soil

Packet of 3 seeds


Pre Sowing Instructions: Soak seeds in warm water for 48 hours changing the water often.

Sowing Instructions: Sow at any time of the year in moist seed compost mixed 50:50 with vermiculite. Seeds can be sown individually in pots, in deep trays, or if space is limited in small bags. Cover seeds with about 5mm of compost. Place containers in a propagator or above a radiator at about 25-30C during the day and 20C at night. Keep compost moist at all times but not wet or the seeds may rot. Palm seeds often make a large root before a shoot so carefully check seeds regularly. When a root appears, pot up individually into 9-11cm pots. Germination can be erratic but should take place in 1 - 4 weeks.

Growing Instructions: Grow the seedlings on at a minimum temperature of around 18C reducing this as plants become stronger. When plants are a year old they can be placed outside in summer when it is at least 10C at night).  After hardening off, plant out in the garden when 2-3 years old in a sunny or lightly shaded position in well drained soil.
