I think it's an Alexander Palm, judging by the leaves. They generally grow to be between 12 and 24 meters tall and around 4 meters wide.

Then again that looks like a clustering trunk. Not sure from the photo. If that is the case, my money is on it being an areca palm. They go between 3 and 5 meters tall and and around 2,5 meters wide.

Hope I've been useful.

G'day,
Thank you for your reply. I have planted it in the garden as it grows I will have a better idea. With all this rain it will become well established!
Many thanks.

This is a bamboo palm (Chamaedorea seifrizii) it is a clumping palm that grows
To around 7ft. Plant in a semi shaded area for a great hardy palm. Good luck
