The Dwarf palmetto Palm is one of the most hardy species of palm, surviving ridiculously cold temperatures in its native climate. In the UK it needs warm summers to grow and reach its potential. Certainly limitless water and a rich diet will help speed this attractive palm along allowing its tough costapalmate fan leaves to be allowed at full spread.

GENERAL CARE

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. 

PLANTING

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.

A lovely palm, which came in very secure packing but allowing breathing space for the plant. Can't wait to see it grow, if my puppy leaves it alone : )
