These are in a public / private garden, but they do sell them here in 160 litre bags.
They are available for sale in the UK - You would have to ask others on this forum to help you in that area.

Yes, I have 2. One is still a strap leaved seedling about 2ft tall & the other (which was purchased from The Palm Centre last year) is 3ft tall & going pinnate now. Both are planted out, but don't get much sun, so are not very fast growing...

It was about £30 from memory, but they did have much larger ones about 5-6ft tall for about £200...

Mine was 1/2 price from Amulree (all sold out now no surprisingly), so £40.

If they come back in stock at 1/2 price I'm going to snap up a few more.

Hi,

Took some more photos of it today. Note the mug of tea for scale!

It's in a 30L pot and stands about 5 to 6 feet tall including the pot if you pull the fronds up.

As I said, if these come up in the 1/2 price sale again I recommend grabbing at least one!

That's a nice size Mike ( not too small but not too big ) My one is smaller than that.
Here's a nice one in the Christchurch Gardens just 2km from me.
