An old favourite - one of the oldest plants in the world - that makes a modern garden feature, a tropical oasis, a balcony extravagance, or light well surprise. 

These tree ferns are delivered potted and have been overwintered in a glasshouse, so have beautiful fresh fronds. They can be planted outside but if temperatures are low or their is a late frost, this could turn the foliage brown. 

They require protection in the colder months, in place or by overwintering under-glass.
