Palms are one of the ‘must have’ plants for an exotic garden and, since its first introduction into cultivation in the UK in the Victorian era, Chamaerops Humilis have proved to be an exceptionally hardy and robust palm. Indeed it is the toughest of all palms and the most suitable for the U.K climate.

Caring for your Palm tree

It will grow pretty well anywhere but to keep it looking in prime condition try to plant  in a moist but well-drained soil in good sun or part shade and, most importantly, out of the wind. When happy it will grow 30cm or more of trunk in a season. Branched heads of flowers are produced in early summer, adding to the exotic effect.

Chamaerops Humilis can be planted at any time of the year, but ideally it should be done during spring and summer.  When planting dig a hole larger than the root-ball, which should be given a good soak before planting. Back-fill the hole with a free draining mix such as John Innes no 3 and grit.Water thoroughly. This helps with the establishment of a healthy root system. If planting during a dry spell, water the hole first, allow to drain, plant, back-fill, and then water again.
