Hi all,

It is not too late, I'll be glad for further initiatives.

With flowering Trachycarpus I have no experience, but it is normal to have a female 9 pieces of flowers?

Yes it's normal, and is healthy. Dust some male pollen on them when the flowers initiate anthesis (when the stigma is receptive to pollen) and you can have countless seeds.
