Brahea edulis

I'm not sure about edulis, but mine also is supposed to be very wind resistant which is useful were I live on the coast. I also know it should grow in North Wales as some one else is growing one. icon_thumright

Palm advice please

MB, as you live in Telford I would plant the Jubaea outside, as I think they are slightly more hardy also the ultimate size is bigger, if you are young enough to watch it grow. :roll: Also do you intend to move house in the future? If so plant the other one out. icon_thumleft
