Re: Letting most of the garden go

Message from Jim in Iowa

Thanks Alex

I started last year letting some go....Butia,FortxWag
7 Sabal and 2 Needle palms...all but one of the Sabal
came back(actually they all did but one rotted from moisture
in the growth point in spring)...unless I cut all the leaves
off the 2 front Trachys they are to tall to cover with the
resources I have...that said,I will see how they fair after
10F tonight(or so) and see if I have anything to put over them
and also if I have any lights.
