chamaerops humilis from B&Q

I was at B&Q this weekend and picked up a 6 ft plus chamaerops (1.5 ft largest trunk) for £60. Not sure if they will be the same in other stores as It was way bigger than the rest they had at the same price. I'm guessing they go by pot size and this ...

Where to buy a mature Chamaerops humilis

Hi All,

I'm in the market for a mature Chamaerops humilis (poss cerifera), at least 1m of trunk (maybe 1.5m). Anybody got any good places to purchase from (good also equals nicely priced). I don't want to go overboard on price but want a good sized tree..

Cheers
Ben

Potted Chamaerops root trimming Q

I've noticed my big Chammie Arborescens in its 160ltr pot has roots trailing out of the drainage holes.

Will it be ok to trim these off? its on the patio right now as we move in a few months so im drying to keep the pot dryer as its blooming heavy.

Chammy Cerifera, Butia Capitata and Brahea Armata

I need some advice please. These three palms have only been planted out for a year but looks like I'm going to have to dig them up and pot them for a short while before planting in the ground again. I'm not sure how these will cope as I've never dug and potted one up before. I'm thinking the Chammy ...

Cerifera planted out, the blue colouration is outstanding

Heres how its looking after 38.5mm of rain in a week, I worried it would wash all the blue off, as its just a coating right? but its looking bluer than ever, such a stark contrast against the grass and surrounding trachys, bamboo. Its going to look even better once fresh spears start emerging, as so...
