Re: This guy was/is my inspiration when it comes to growing palms

Wow, I never knew sideways trunking meant increased cold tolerance, both of mine are exhibiting this trait, each having shifted about an inch or so "off of their axis" over the course this year's growing season. I found it annoying, but now I don't mind lol. This will be their first winter in the ground, I plan on protecting them from zone 8a and lower temperatures, hopefully we won't have much of those, I'll be keeping rain and snow off of them as well.
My inspiration came from everyone growing palms in zone 7 or lower. Especially those in climates similar to mine.
