I have just bought a cocos Nucifera and am unsure of whether to plant it in the garden or keep it in the conservatory. Help please!



Hi, keep it in the conservatory, this is the commercial coconut palm, and wouldn,t stand a chance outside,it being native to the seychelles, hope your conservatory is a tall one,lol. good luck, derekm

Very frost tender! Even in the conservatory, it will probably need heating in the winter. It could go outside in the summer, but not until well after the last frost, and taken in well before the first frost. Be sure to give it plenty of sun.
