Slow growing palm from south eastern USA where it grows in abundance. A very robust palm which will keep its shape well despite winds and cold temperatures. Will do best in a warm suntrap outdoors, but equally as happy grown in a greenhouse or conservatory. Easy to grow, its only needs are plenty of water and light, plus a fleece jacket in winter if grown outdoors.

Hardy Palm (to -5C)
Height: to 10m, smaller indoors
Position: Sheltered suntrap outdoors or brightly lit spot indoors

Packet of 10 seeds



Sowing Instructions: Sow at any time of the year. Sow individually in small pots of moist seed compost, eg. John Innes, 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.
