Mediterranean fan palm (Chamaerops humilis) care tips & plant information


Mediterranean fan palm (Chamaerops humilis)

    Care tips

  • Position: Full sun.
  • Watering: Water regularly during growing season. Do not overwater. There is normally no need to water Chamaerops palms during the winter, only make sure the root ball does not dry out.
  • Hardiness: Frost hardy down to -9°C (mature plants can tolerate even lower temperatures). Protect from severe frost and cold drying winds. It is one of the hardiest palm trees and one of a select few that will grow well in Southern England.
  • Pruning: Remove lower leaves as they become brown or tatty. Cut close to the trunk.
  • Soil: Well-drained. Fertile. Repot every two to three years.
  • Feeding: During growing season top dress regularly with slow release Palm fertiliser. There is no need for fertiliser during the winter period. Avoid high concentration of fast acting liquid fertiliser.
