Re: Will these seed be viable?

id let them mature longer... even if off the tree. them put them in a Ziploc bag of water, no air.... they'll germinate best if at 75f or greater...maybe on top your water heater

I suggest south-facing wall with heavy mulch and shelter from ALL winter moisture and wind... then you may get in to some trachys, chamaerops, and maybe a pindo or a sabal. A...

I covered a large sabal minor two years ago for the first freeze event of the year, using a sonotube, rope and a vapor barrier tent. It was well secured, yet blew over. The sonotube got soft. I wouldn't use one again. The humidity causes them to fail.
