Trachycarpus fortunai seeds

Hi, I also thought you needed a male tree to pollinate your grandads Trachycarpus, are you shure the seeds are fertile? If so there must be a male hiding somewhere.

New member hello all

Hi Doddy,

What part of Worcestershire do you come from? I lived in the village of Burcot most of my life, hope the garden goes well. You can find plenty of advice on here.
