Product Information

You may know this exotic beauty as the Windmill Palm or Chusan Palm, but regardless of what you call the Trachycarpus fortunei, this hardy and evergreen palm tree is sure to bring fascination to your garden!

With deep-green, tough, fan-shaped leaves that produce wonderful shadows on the patio or lawn, this palm will become a brilliant centrepiece to draw the eye, regardless of where it is planted.

While being perfectly suited for planting directly into the ground in a warm and sunny spot, Trachycarpus is also ideal for a large patio pot as itís compact and slow growing. This means that you can enjoy it regardless of the size of your garden, and if you move, you can simply take it with you without worrying about losing your investment.

Winner of a prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be guaranteed that this is a garden-worthy plant that has been trialled and tested for its suitability to grow in UK gardens.

Supplied as an established potted plant, already approximately 50-60cm tall, including the nursery pot.

Top Tips

Simply cut off the leaves when they turn brown and over time, an upright, woody, fibrous trunk is formed.

Care Information

  • Grow in any well-drained, fertile soil in full sun or lightly dappled shade.
  • Needs protection from strong or cold drying winds and will need protection from hard winter frosts by wrapping the leaves.
  • If you live in an area prone to frost, you should consider growing Trachycarpus in a pot.
  • Use a soil-based compost, such as John Innes No 2, with extra grit added to improve stability of the post and help drainage.
  • Add controlled-release fertiliser granules to the pot or use a liquid feed every two week from mid-spring to late summer.
  • Check plants and repot every two years in spring so that the soil does not become exhausted and stale.
