Description

The spectacular Chusan Palm is unmistakable – with its upright, shaggy trunk crowned with fans of large palmate leaves held on long stems. During summer, male clones produce masses of dense panicles of sulphur yellow flowers. Female flowers are a little less showy but are followed by attractive, blue-black, kidney shaped fruits.

Trachycarpus fortune is an exceptionally hardy palm that is perfect for UK climates, tolerating cool wet summers, cold winters and varying conditions from partial shade to full sun. It is also one of the easiest palms to grow from seed. The impressive architecture of this deservedly popular palm forms a truly eye-catching feature in a large container or in the border. Height: 3m (10ft). Spread: 2m (6.5ft).

Sowing

Sow seeds in spring after filing or nicking the hard seed coat to allow water to penetrate. Soak the seeds in warm water for 1-3 days, until they have swollen, changing the water each day. Sow into modules in good quality, gritty compost. Water and place in a plastic bag or propagator to retain humidity. Keep in a warm, light place between 15-20C. Seeds will germinate in around two months. Remove the seedlings from the bag/propagator once they have germinated. When larger, pot on into 9cm pots and allow to grow on before planting out in a well-drained, sheltered position in full sun or partial shade.

How to Grow
Grow trachycarpus plants in any fertile, well drained soil in sun or semi-shade. Choose a position with shelter from strong winds.
More Info
Feed and water regularly until fully established. Once established, trachycarpus requires virtually no maintenance. Brown lower leaves and old flower stems may be trimmed away to maintain a tidy appearnce if required.
