Description

Native to China, Trachycarpus fortunei is one of the hardiest of all the palm trees and is capable of growing at a more northerly latitude than any other palm, resisting heavy frost, extreme ice and blizzards of driving snow. It is also one of the most rewarding exotic palms to grow and is extremely easy in cultivation. Once large enough to plant in its permanent position, Trachycarpus fortunei is a relatively fast growing species and given lots of root room, a generous amount of humus-rich compost and lots of water in the growing season it will soon form an extremely handsome specimen.

In many ways Trachycarpus fortunei is the absolute mainstay of the exotic gardener. One of the hardiest and most architectural plants we can grow, it is a no-fuss quick-growing outdoor palm tree that will take whatever adverse weather Nature throws at it. Trachycarpus fortunei has fan-shaped fronds and a hairy matted trunk that can be stripped bare if you prefer your trunks to be naked. It does make them look more exotic. Like all palms it should be nursed overwinter through its first year in a glasshouse or conservatory until it is large enough to transplant outside. Having said that, Trachycarpus fortunei will always stay small if kept in a pot and the sooner you get it growing in its permanent position the better. Dig in plenty of compost, well-rotted horse muck and a fair bit of grit and watch it romp away ! A sunny position sheltered from wind will always be the best position. All palms respond well to generous amounts of nitrogen.

An essential hardy palm.

Heathy plants but totally grown into plastic covers Review by J
Good foliage and more importantly roots but these were totally interwoven within their plastic pots. Difficult to extricate without damage to enable freedom to grow. However better this than poor root development. (Posted on 26/03/2017)
