Why We Love It

Turn your home and garden exotically evergreen with the Trachycarpus fortunei 'Chusan Palm.'

It originates from high mountainsides and hills of central China and as a result it's one of the hardiest palms you can grow.

The long trunk can reach upwards of 12 m in its lifetime and is covered in tufty brown fibres for resistance to the cold.

Wide fan-shaped leaves reach up to one metre across and cluster around the top.

Plant yours in a container or in the ground for an eye-catching patio garden addition.

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.
