    Hardy Palm Suggestion?

    Don't go for a massive one to start with, at £30 per foot you'll need at least a 3 footer for a decent show - a lot of money in my book.

    Well it is definitely growing nicely, has thrown out loads of new growth on the top, and has been suckering since I posted this - although no doubt this will wind down as winter approaches! Cheers!
