Palm advice please

I have two new palms, one I want to keep in a pot and the other to plant in a new island bed.
The faster growing for the island bed, the palms are Jubaea Chilensis and Butia Odora.
Which of the two is the faster growing 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
Don't Just sit there, plant something!
