I edited the link by taking the text off the end, and it now works.

Click on the link half way down, with text below, to see the pics

Thanks for editing Dave !

The first pic on the left you see on the page when you click the link is the Trachycarpus as a seedling, the picture on the right is the same plant 14 years later. The text below the pictures state also that the palms are located in central Belgium and never had any form of winterprotection.

They really can go fast. I think I planted one of mine with 15 cm trunc in 2003 and grew also about 150 cm of trunc till now.
