Care Guide

  • Grow in any well-drained, fertile soil in full sun or lightly dappled shade.
  • Needs protection from strong or cold drying winds and will need protection from hard winter frosts by wrapping the leaves.
  • If you live in an area prone to frost, you should consider growing Trachycarpus in a pot.
  • Use a soil-based compost, such as John Innes No 2, with extra grit added to improve stability of the post and help drainage.
  • Add controlled-release fertiliser granules to the pot or use a liquid feed every two week from mid-spring to late summer.
  • Check plants and repot every two years in spring so that the soil does not become exhausted and stale.
