Not picky on the species, but it seems all I can find for sale online are seeds

Probably because Brahea species are notoriously poor transplanters,especially if bare rooted for shipping.

So how do you put them in the ground?

Put the seeds directly in the ground?

No. They will transplant from a POT,where roots have minimal disturbance just fine. If BARE ROOTED to save weight and size on shipping,it is almost a guaranteed death sentence for certain species like this or Bismarckia,or Copernicia, for example.

Here's some Bismarckia freshly field dug and shipped to Lowes. You would think the grower would have been more careful.

Wow, indeed. I bet nobody cares, the grower got his dough and lowes probably paid peanuts for the whole field.

That W. Robusta on the left on the other end looks good. That’s the only palm i m putting in ground this year.

The Lowes store here in San Francisco often has Wodyetia palms for sale.   :(

Why the sad face?

i assume Wodyetia should not be sold to transplant?

Foxtails have no chance growing in SF.  Not enough heat.

Wodyetia has zero chance of survival as an outdoor, in-ground plant here in San Francisco.  I consider its presence at a local garden center to be gross incompetence, (or more likely ignorance) by whoever manages the store inventory.

 This is a prime example of just how crude are the USDA climate zones, both SF and south Florida are zone 10.
