haven't got one down in the garden down here but i believe they need a long warm summer to grow well . apparently they are hardy to at least - 6 C in California as quoted on the IPS forum .

I have just bought some germinated seeds off eBay. At least it wont have cost much when the palms eventually end up in the recycling bin. :roll: icon_thumright
