Palmettos grow in the wild in our woods here in NW Florida. I have a native garden and would like to add them to my garden. I have been unable to locate a source to purchase them locally. I'm not sure they would live if I just dug up plants in the woods. Plus, this is really not legal. Any ideas for sources and info on growing?

I would call my local extension office and ask them. They probably could help you out with both of your questions. Good Luck [flower]

I live in central east florida, and I love the
palmetto. I just found 4 large ones that somebody
had dumped near trash cans. I put them in front
of my house. They are really beautifull. What I am
doing regularly is look where they are going to
clear a vacant lot and ask for the trees that are
cleared. You can look at sites where is new
development and ask if you can get the palmettos.

good luck!

I had a bookmark for TyTy nursery. I was interested in bananas and palms, but I see they also have saw palmetto. Hardy to zone 6!! I could grow this!

Hi All,
I just wanted to say, a friend of mine had ordered from them a few years ago, and wasn't very happy with what they had sent. Buyer beware. I'm not trying to slam them, just wanted you to be aware. They do have a wonderful site, and I often use it to ID other plants, but didn't want you to be unhappy.
I second the motion for the extension office, they may have some they will give you.
Good luck,
