Sabal minor (Dwarf Palmetto Palm) seeds

Sabal minor (Dwarf Palmetto Palm) seeds


Unusual little palm growing to only 2m. This palm is almost trunkless and will produce very large leaves which seem to sprout almost out of the ground! A very hardy palm though it does need a decent amount of summer heat and well drained soil to grow well. Will also grow happily indoors.

Hardy Palm (to -15C)
Height: to 2m
Position: Sun and well drained soil

Packet of 10 seeds



Sowing Instructions: Sow at any time of the year. Sow individually in small pots of moist, peat-based seed compost, eg. Levington, mixed 50:50 with vermiculite. Cover lightly with 3mm of compost or vermiculite. Seal pots in a polythene bag and place in a propagator or other warm place, eg. on a sunny 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, keeping them well watered. If planting outside, wait until they are at least 2 years old and protect with bubble wrap and a fleece jacket in winter.
