Once established the Jelly palm requires very little care, just a tidy up of old fronds once a year. Additional watering and feeding are beneficial if potted. Look to apply a liquid fertilizer monthly throughout the growing season.

Due to its blue/green foliage colour and graceful form Butia capitata can be used in a variety of planting schemes from tropical to coastal, even to Mediterranean planting schemes.

Palm trees can bring a Mediterranean or tropical feel to gardens and indoor spaces alike. Despite their prominence in hotter climates, palm trees are very hardy plants that are easy to care for and which can thrive in the British climate.
