Palm trees are mostly found in tropical and sub-tropical temperatures. Some are suitable as outdoor plants in Britain. Ideally they need to be planted in the spring and then they flower in the summer, they can grow to a height of 2 metres and can spread out to 7 metres. They flourish in both shady and sunny areas and are hardy in mild conditions.
In winter protect your palm trees that are in containers by bringing them under cover. If left outside to prevent frost damage make sure that the pot is covered in bubble wrap.
Some trees have to be pruned, however this is not the case with a palm tree. Lower dead leaves can be taken away, avoid cutting them back flush to the trunk of the palm.
If you find that your trees get damaged in the winter months, in the spring remove the damaged growth as this will aid the recovery process. They only grow from the top and if this is damaged the palm is unable to re grow. If the plant doesn't recover in the summer the plant may have to be replaced.
I just received the Chusan Palm I ordered from you. It's gorgeous! It's even bigger than I expected!! I've just ordered a tree fern and cordyline from you- if they are the same quality I know I won't be disappointed. Thank you very much!!! I would recommend you to anyone.
