Description

Impressive large fans of pleated leaves, which are much more divided than those on the normal variety, adorn a slender fibrous trunk and bring an instant touch of the Mediterranean to your garden. Despite its delicate appearance, this plant is hardy across most areas of the UK and tends to be quite slow-growing so that you can be sure it will not be too quick to overwhelm whatever space you give it.

Sowing Advice

These seeds need a period of stratification to break their dormancy. You can do this by soaking the seeds for 24 hours and then placing them in a sealed freezer bag in the fridge. Do not allow the seeds to dry out. The seeds can then be sown after 6-8 weeks and should germinate normally in a safe, bright, cold place outdoors, and can take up to 6 months or even much longer so do not discard the seed pot. Alternatively you can sow the seed in a moist seed tray and then leave the tray outside over the winter to allow for natural stratification to occur.
