Palms plants are synonymous with exotic locations and holidays away on gorgeous sunny beaches. However, there are many hardy palm trees available which are ideal for the UK’s temperate climate. This means that you can easily grow these exotic looking specimens in your own garden, enabling you to bring a bit of holiday luxury to your own home.
Cycas Palms are ideal for growing in a container, it is possible to grow it outside in milder regions of the UK, as long as winter protection is provided. Plant in free-draining soil or compost in full sun. If growing outside as part of a tropical planting scheme, provide full protection in winter as temperatures below -5° will damage the leaves. Avoid over-watering as this can lead to root rot.
