Torquay Palms

Is it possible to take cuttings from Torquay Palms?   I lost both my palms in the harsh winter but now have a total of 15 growing from the base of two plants!   Can anyone help as I feel that this number of plants growing in one place will be a tad dangerous with high winds etc.,

    Hi Niggycat, I've never grown any myself but am aware they need some protection from cold weather. Folk who grow them near me tie the fronds up and put a cover on them . This link is quite informative from the R.H.S.

    Hope this helps,

    You are best waiting until spring, when you can try digging up one of the shoots to see if it has roots and going from there.
