Bring some exotic vibes to your garden with the European Fan Palm. You’d be forgiven for thinking this plant would prefer warm and tropical conditions, however it’s un-phased by winds and cold temperatures and is praised for being low maintenance. Its fan-like leaves will bring interest and texture to your outdoor space.

In its natural habitat of Spain, Portugal and North Africa, the leaves on this plant can reach as long as 1.5m – but don’t panic about them transforming your garden into a jungle, as they should only grow a few centimetres every year within a pot.

This is one of the most adaptable species of palms, able to handle both extremes of weather from hot to cold. To see it thrive, ensure it gets at least 4-6 hours of direct sunlight every day and water when the top two inches of soil are dry. If you want to encourage this plant to grow tall, feed it some fertiliser monthly in spring and summer months. This plant is also non-toxic, so safe around your furry friends.

Jo's top tip
If you spot some tired leaves on this plant, don't feel disheartened, this is all part of the ageing process whilst it establishes itself outdoors. In time, it'll perk up and look more sprightly.

    In short, if anything isn't right with your order we'll sort it. 

    Your plants have not only been packaged by humans (we’d like to find a robot that could beat our packaging skills) but by our in-house team of plant lovers who have lovingly prepared your order.

    If you’re not happy with your plants, let us know within 30 days, by contacting us via live chat, email or phone and a friendly member of our team will do their absolute best to rectify anything that's gone wrong.

    It's not just the plants that we care about though, we're pretty proud of our market leading (sustainable) packaging too. We’ve created a family of transport boxes with handles and where possible use our 'anti-roll' device which prevents the plant from travelling around should the box be inadvertently tipped upside down during transit.

    Things occasionally go wrong, but we'd like to assure you we're on hand help!
