Love these potted plants. Just beautiful!!! - Is the palm tree planted in the pot or behind it? If it is in the pot could I have the size pot you used? Thank You, Marilyn

Hi Marilyn, Thank you for the compliment! Yes the palm is planted in the container. The container measures around 36" across. It has been in this container now for around 5 years and we fertilize about once every 10 days during the summer months. The container is made of a light weight fibreglass composite with a copper finish. One thing you have to watch out for when you plant in a light weight container is that as the palm grows it gets a bit top heavy and can topple over in the wind. We had to dig it out and weigh down the container with bricks. I hope this helps! Glenna
