Best grown in containers or in a well sheltered border in fertile, well drained soil. Use a good quality compost such Incredicompost® if planting in a container and if possible give some protection during the winter months. Mature plants can tolerate temperatures down to -12 C if the soil is suitably well drained.
Feed and water regularly until established, once mature, European Fan Palms require less attention and can be drought tolerant. Use protective clothing when pruning or moving plants as can cause skin irritation. Use horticultural fleece to protect pots if cannot be moved indoors during winter.
