Trachycarpus near pool..

Post by Beny » Sun Nov 04, 2012 4:19 pm

Trachycarpus in good shape in Blainville near Montreal. It will be protected soon for the winter with the other trachy and 2 washy. Thats give a real tropical look around the pool.

Gorgeous look, Beny.

Love the addition of the Washy.

Yes, the washy was planted by the customer this spring. He bought them at the botanical center for 90$ each, good deal. I sold him the protection kit for the Trachy and he will try to protect the Washy too. I ll try with my washy at home, and will follow the development during the winter.

Sometimes Home Depot sells Washingtonia robustas for 35 bucks. 12" pot, 6 foot tall palm. I think $90 for that (very nice, but) little guy is a little high.
Looking forward to see your protection measures.

wow. I am a little jealous those palms look really good. Would love to see how you protect those palms.
