Where can I purchase a flamboyant tree in the uk



The Flamboyant tree, Delonix regia will not tollerate temperatures below 5 degrees Celsius. It can grow up to 40 feet high so I would imagine that you would have to contain it in a pot and shelter in a cool green house or conservatory during the winter months if you can reduce the size dramatically by constant pruning. As regards purchasing one; you can buy the seeds on Ebay or if you wanted a small tree then I would suggest contacting someone like Europlants or asking your local garden centre to try and get you one from Holland as they will be importing plants from them on a regular basis.

that was what I was going to say Jimmy. Not hardy in the uk. it is a wonderful tree but I think it would struggle to survive and not do well in a pot.

welcome to GoY too :o)

Hi, welcome to GoY, The info above is correct, but if you still want to buy 1, there is 1 supplier in the U K, I've had a look for you, and although they do sell mail order, and have them available at £18 for a 10 ltr pot, unfortunately they say this particular plant is unavailable mail order, [could be because of the size].
I haven't got a clue how far west sussex is from east sussex, but their address is ; Sleepers stile rd, Cousley wood, Wadhurst, east sussex, TN5 6QX.
If you look at their website, it's
hope this helps, Derek.
