Product Description

 

The Cabbage Palm is a popular grass tree for Coastal and City gardens. These exotic plants have a palm-like appearance and are excellent for use as a bedding or container plant, though will also add a stunning touch to homes and conservatories. Cabbage Palms produce wonderful long, thin and arching leaves for a clean and sculptured appearance. The Red Star Variety has a reddy-bronze colouring which are paler in colour when kept in part shade. Cabbage trees are an ideal way to bring the Jungle to your own home or garden.

Pot size 13cm.

 

Growing and Care Tips:

  • Full sun to part shade, any well-drained soil

  • Easy Care

  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil

  • In spring, when new growth appears and all danger of hard frosts has passed, cut back frost-damaged branches to just above the newly formed shoots.

  • Use a good quality loam-based compost for container growing and move the plant to a sheltered spot or under cover in the winter.

  • It must be kept in a frost-free place over winter. If being grown outside permanently, it needs to be planted in a sheltered hot spot in soil that drains freely.

  • If outside, the plant will need some protection over winter, so wrap it up in fleece to protect it from frosts.

  • Hot sunny border

Cordyline Australis tree 01:13

After My old purple Cordyline (Cory) died due to a root rot infection i decided to buy a much larger, older and lets face it better cordyline to replace it! I went for the green form as they are hardier and i have now planted it up in a large tub with some bulb/flowers (hyacinth's and grape Hycinth's) for the woodland look! It should look better as an arrangement as the tree gets bigger and the flowers naturalise within the pot! Watch out for more videos!
