Pre-Sowing; Soak the seeds in warm water for 2 hours before sowing.
Sowing; Sow at any time of the year in moist, peat-based seed compost, mixed 50:50 with vermiculite. Seeds can be sown individually in pots, in deep trays, or if space is limited in small bags. Cover seeds with about 5mm of compost. Place containers in a dark place at 20-23C or in a propagator covered with a cloth. Keep compost moist at all times but not wet or the seeds may rot. Palm seeds often make a large root before a shoot so carefully check seeds regularly. When a root appears, pot up individually into 9-11cm pots. Germination can be erratic but should take place in 2-6 months.
Growing; Grow the seedlings on at a minimum temperature of around 18C reducing this as plants become stronger. When plants are a year old they can be placed outside in summer (at least 10C at night) after a period of hardening off (move plants outdoors during day and back indoors at night for 10 days). Can be planted out in the garden when 3-4 years old but will need to be protected from frost by wrapping with straw and fleece/bubble wrap. Phoenix like well-drained soil and a sunny to partly-shaded position. It is advisable to pick a sheltered spot away from strong winds which may shred the leaves.
