We are a family run business and have been growing palm trees since the early 1980's building up a wealth of experience and knowledge enabling us to produce the high quality hardy palm trees we sell today.
 
The nursery mainly produces hardy varieties of palm trees. One of which is the Trachycarpus fortunei , native to the Himalayan Mountains commonly known as the Himalayan Palm or Chusan Palm or Windmill Palm. Another palm that comes with our full recommendation is the beautiful Trachycarpus Wagnerianus nicknamed Miniature Chusan Palm or Waggy. These palm trees are both suitable for growing outside in the UK.
 
We also supply palm trees that are ideal for container or smaller gardens, coastal areas or exposed locations. For such locations, consider Chamaerops humilis or the Mediterranean Palm which is a small and bushy palm. This palm tree have 2 more variants which are equally as interesting, one of which is the Chamaerops humilis var argentea, a silver-leaf palm from the Atlas Mountains and the unusual Chamaerops “Vulcano”, a palm tree with more dense and compact foliage.
 
There are also other varieties that we can supply that will flourish in the hot dry arid environments of conservatories or centrally heated homes and offices. Whilst other species are ideal for humid environments such as swimming pools, or any room with plenty of natural light or even indirect filtered light.
 
Our outdoor, hardy palm trees are grown in Hampshire without any heating in the winter and are grown and supplied in containers with strong root system which make them easy to establish & maintain.
 
We display a sample of our stock in all the major Royal Horticultural Society  shows around the country. As a regular RHS exhibitor, over many years we have acquired many prestigious awards such as Best New Exhibitor award at Hampton Court Palace Flower Show 2003 and several highly-coveted gold medal awards at the world's famous RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
