Cycas revoluta is a pretty common cycad found in nurseries in Brisbane, 
Australia. It can be in full sun or part shade, indoors is OK, moderate 
watering (ensure good drainage, less water indoors), apply general 
fertilizer (eg. pelletised chook manure, say, 1 handful) twice a year.  
It is slow growing, but the leaf shape/texture makes the species a good 
feature plant for a 'tropical' look.  I is relatively frost and drought 
hardy, but UK... don't know.

Good luck
