An exotic looking palm tree for a British garden! The Phoenix Palm can happily be grown in a pot or container and incorporated into a patio display or placed in a border for a touch of the unusual. Also known as the Canary Island Date Palm, this plant will have its height limited to approximately 6 feet (182cm) if kept in a container, however in milder, sheltered areas it may be suitable to be planted directly into the ground where it can reach up to 5m (16') tall with a canopy of 3m (10') which will look truly amazing. Also suitable for growing in a conservatory, this winner of a RHS Award of Garden Merit is guaranteed to please, wherever it is located.
Feed and water regularly until established, once mature, Phoenix 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.
If growing outside, plant Phoenix Palm in a sunny, shelter position, free from frost. Best grown normally in containers that can be moved during the winter for best protection. Use a good quality compost such as Incredicompost® and place on a sunny patio or in a conservatory or large greenhouse.
