Naturally a tall single trunked, many branched tree, here in the UK Cordyline australis rarely reaches giant proportions as, inevitably, it will be cut back by cold. Recent winters have demonstrated that plants reduced to ground level will usually re-sprout from the base and quickly regain some size.
In fact few plants are as undemanding and tolerant: from the wet salt-laden gales of the southwest to the parched eastern counties, Cabbage trees abound, quickly growing into architectural specimens.
Vast spikes of scented flowers in late summer can fill a garden with perfume - resultant seed laden trusses help birds through winter.

The plants that leave our nursery are in the best condition, free of disease.

Most palms need tropical or subtropical temperatures, but there are some suitable for planting outdoors in the British Isles. Hardy palms are invaluable as structural plants in tropical-style gardens and look effective when planted with bananas, bamboos and New Zealand flax.
Hardy palm trees can be planted at any time of the year, but ideally it should be done during spring and summer.
Try to dig a hole a good deal bigger than the root-ball, which should be given a good soak before planting. Back-fill the hole with a free draining mix
Water thoroughly. This will be beneficial to the establishment of the root system. If planting during a dry spell, water the hole first, allow to drain, plant, back-fill, and then water again.

Lovely plant, larger than expected, and delivered in first class condition. This was a gift for my daughter and the Palm Centre kindly delayed delivery until the day she moved into her new house. It arrived mid-afternoon on the day she moved in, and she's delighted with it. I will definitely be purchasing again from the Palm Centre.
Absolutely superb service. Arrived quickly and as stated, very very well packaged. The Palm tree was far taller than expected but I'm not complaining! It's a great example of an Australis, couldn't be happier with it. the courier really did look after their packages which is becoming rarer by the month. Can't praise the palm centre enough. Thanks guys!
