Why We Love It

Bring a taste of East Asia to any outdoor space with the Trachycarpus fortunei also known as the 'Chusan Palm'.

Originally found in China this palm will create a tropical feel especially if you're looking to create your own exotic safe-haven or garden showstopper. As a hardy plant the Trachycarpus fortunei is both easy to maintain and can reach up to eight metres if it gets plenty of sunshine and is kept away from strong winds.

Its vibrant fan-shaped leaves and carefully stripped slim trunk make it the perfect accent piece whether by itself or planted in groups.

The decorative pot is sold separately.

How to Plant

The Trachycarpus fortunei is a hardy palm so you can choose to plant it at any time of the year, but spring and summer tend to be the best options. Once you've chosen a bright, sunny and sheltered spot, you'll find it easy to grow and maintain throughout the year.

Into the Ground

Ready to plant your palm? Have a spade and a watering tool ready, along with some moist but well-drained soil or peat-free multi-purpose compost.

  1. Dig a hole that is twice the size of the Trachycarpus fortunei's rootball.
  2. Carefully remove your palm from its container and allow the rootball to soak before you move on.
  3. Place it in the planting hole, back-filling with soil until it is secure.
  4. Water thoroughly so that the wet reaches the palm roots.

Into a Pot

If you're planting into a pot or container, you'll need the same tools, plus a container larger than the one your palm arrived in.

  1. Pour a small amount of soil at the bottom of your chosen container.
  2. Put the palm in place and then back-fill soil around the rootball.
  3. Water thoroughly and add more soil as needed.
