Re: Hooray it's spring again! How was everybody's winter?

Well I didn't protect anything as usual this winter. I have about four rostratas that didn't make it. My trunking rostrata looks great and my other trunking yucca recurvifolia looks like it will pull through. My baccatas look great as well. I guess I will have to wait and see. All my cacti look good...

Re: Hooray it's spring again! How was everybody's winter?

Sorry to hear about your Washingtonia palms! I had a colder winter than usual. Plus lot's more snow.
I'm pretty sure most of my Yucca rostratas are fried. :( My biggest one survived so I'm happy about that.
