These are wonderful sized Trachycarpus for sending out to you, they will make an instant impact but at the same time are very easy to plant or pot up. Trachycarpus fortunei is an incredibly hardy palm and extremely easy to grow well. Once planted, this size palm will take around ten years to reach 6ft or so. They will grow happily in full sun or a shady spot and dont mind a moist soil as long as its well drained, being evergreen they look great all year round and look particulalry great with other architectural foliage, such as Tetrapanax, Bamboo, Fatsia ect. this is a low maintenance plant that just needs the odd spent leaf taking off every now and then. Plant out of strong winds as this can make the leaves look a little scruffy.

Situation Open Close
This palm does best in dappled shade, but tolerates full sun and dense shade very well. Strong winds can damage the leaves, so plant in a sheltered site if possible.
Feeding Open Close
Enjoys lots of nutrients, so pile on the well rotted manure or liquid feed regularly though the growing season.
Pruning Open Close
Remove old tired foliage as required.
Compost/Soil Open Close
Good rich well drained soil is ideal; however it will also tolerate a heavier clay soil too.
Watering Open Close
If possible water copiously through the summer, it will greatly benefit the plant, little if any water is needed in the winter.
Pests and Diseases Open Close
None to note, palms can suffer with Spider Mite, but those grown outside will be unaffected.
Winter Care Open Close
Very cold tolerant, will withstand temperatures as low as -15C without damage.
