Dicksonia leaves

Hi Jas, it had about 6 leaves when I brought it around about mid September. No roots just a log. Got it home and got it in the ground immediately and supported it with stakes. I left the leaves on but used small pieces of germination sheet in the crown to protect it then wrapped the top 30cm with ge...

Trachycarpusbuying which to buy?

Hi Moods, the two things you haven't mentioned are the trunks and the roots. Do they have nice fat trunks, there is nothing worse than a Trachycarpus that has a thin bottom to the trunk which then fattens higher up to my mind they look appalling.

Welcome to HTUK, Andy icon_cheers Your desire to have exotic 'moods' in the garden will obviously start with the hardiest of the palms, Trachycarpus and Chamaerops along with lbamboos and phormiums which should need no protection.
