I paid not inc postage £50.00, bit bigger than two foot last year.

Have to admit Waitrose does seem over pricing stuff.

Bigger than 2ft, are you referring to the overall hight?

When I had a 2 footer planted under a pergola the fronds were over 6' long. I had to move it in the end and the following year they grew to about 3'.
