Hard to be sure from the small pic, but looks like a T. fortunei to me.  Also the most common Trachy, so it's likely that.

So it appears to be a trachycarpus fortunei then? reason for this post is i was meant to buy either a fortunei or a wagnerianus  but this was first time i sene one in real life and not on the internet and i think they are more beautiful looking than my chamaerops and Cidp and i wanted exactly the same one,but i looked at a few pictures on google and seen only a select few waggys with just 1 or 2 dropping leaves but fortunei they droop alot, and now i have been trying to compare trunks and now this palm in my picture seems to have a wide thick trunk for such a 2-3 footer is it because it is planted in the shade in a north facing garden? but have noticed with fortunei the trunk is hidden underneath the fibers.i just hope when i buy a fortunei it will appear to be like this.
