The Q&A Archives: How long...

Question: How long does it take to grow a palm tree and where can you get them?

Answer: Palm trees are sold at most nurseries in your gardening region. If you want to grow one from seed, there are lots of sources on the internet. Or, collect seeds from a palm tree in your neighborhood and plant them in the ground. Once they begin growing, they typically put on about 12" of height each year. There are some extra fast growing palms and some extra slow growing palms so yours may grow faster or slower than 12 inches per year.
