Foxy Lady palms.

Moderator please remove if not allowed. Just thought it would be more appropriate to post here. There seems to be a demand for the Foxy lady hybrid. My partner Mark and I have decided to do some this year but I would like to gauge an interest. We do not like to grow anything past the 3 gallon stage. We would prefer selling seedlings and 1 gallons to customers. So your interest here will tell me how many I will have to do. I would assume the demand is around 1000 and we should not have to do any more.

Seeds would certainly be my preference as live plant imports are impossible here in Australia. I’d be looking for no more than 100 seed.

For those of you that frequent Facebook, I’ve set up a group called “Pommy palms”, where many of the palms I’ve seen since emigrating to Australia have been documented. If you wish to be a member, copy and paste “Pommy palms” into Facebook to view the page and click “Join group”.

I’d be interested in a shippable size one. For anyone who hasn’t purchased a palm from Erik he an A+ grower and an expert at packing and shipping. I bought a mule from him years ago and was shock at how big it was and how well it was packed.  Especially since it traveled across the country. Happy to report that it’s about 10 feet tall now too.

Sounds like there is quite the demand. We will begin next week. I will not be selling seeds though.

For those I bet the demand is going to be high! They're very hard to find. I bought what I thought was one years ago and turned out to be a pure foxtail but mistakes happen.  I definitely would be interested in a few!

I sold these 15 years ago for around 100 each for 5-6ft 5 gallons. Wish I had kept one or 2 For myself.
