Tree ferns start life as smaller plants, without a trunk, and they quickly grow to have long leaves, giving them a spread of 60-80cm within a couple of years. The trunk will grow at a rate of 2-5cms per year. When mature, they make impressive specimens with tall, woody trunks. Ideal for a shady or sheltered spot. They are hardy, but do not appreciate cold drying winds. Cut back old fronds in late spring, and water the plants once per month in spring and summer using a seaweed based liquid fertiliser to gain lovely big green fronds.

These plants have trunks that are +/- 40cm tall, good and chunky. Sold without a pot, ie as trunks. New fronds are open and developing strongly. Please note: items displayed on this website may not be in stock in each of our shops.
