    Hi Imogen, I'd be interested as I've just started a jungle garden. Could you let me know the size at the base please? I assume we'd have to dig it up, would that be straightforward without damaging the plants around it? It's starting to get a bit late in the year to transplant palm trees, as they need warm soil temperatures to settle. Many thanks Susanne

    Hi Susanne, it is 3.70m to the tip of the top leaf.
    It is 3.50 wide but can be trimmed.
    It is below ground too with roots : been there for a few years.
    It has a friend with it ; a crab apple!

    Hi Susanne,
    Its fine to transport this tree before the frosts. It will go into hibernation over the winter and wake up in the new garden in spring. It lives in London so if it stays here it will be fine to transport this month any time before the frosts come.

    Susanne,
    so sorry I missed this, but this palm is not for the faint hearted. A very sturdy 3.10 ms high by 1.25 wide it will take 2 strong men and a lot of digging to transport. Then you have to dig a massive hole in your garden. Really needs a pick up truck to transport it. I think this palm is more than a match. You are welcome to take it if you have the manpower and expertise and garden! It is absolutely beautiful and stylish and admired but very large! Best regards Imogen
