    • COMING PALMTALK CHANGES - PLEASE READ   02/14/2017

      In the coming week (probably beginning this weekend), several major changes will be occurring with PalmTalk. The result will be short periods of complete closure, or of limited viewing (that is, no posting - but viewing still possible). These changes are major and unexpected complications are always a possibility. So, please be patient and bear with us. For those interested, the first phase will be a migration of the entire site to a new more powerful server. After this is completed, a major upgrade to the newest version of the forum software will then be attempted. It is hoped that these improvements, along with some new configurations of various parameters made possible with the new server capabilities, will result in an elimination of some error messages and glitches which have been plaguing various tasks and viewing recently. As with any upgrade there will probably be some new and/or changed features, or ways of viewing and/or using the forum. I anticipate these will be minor, and as always if there is anything confusing or needing explanation, we will set up a topic to discuss them.

First time at George's place this morning. He's a great guy and grows some awesome plants. He's got some of the biggest pot grown cycads I've ever seen and they are flawless. Thanks again George for showing me around and for the free advice. I can't wait to go there again when I have some more time.

I visited George last weekend. Nice guy, who taught me some interesting things about palms. He's got some pretty rare stuff, and it's all hardened off to the Fallbrook climate. Excellent prices. I'd go back for sure.

I was working in my garden today & noted the many beautiful palms I have purchased from George over the years, not to mention the exceptional cycads.  I have always been able to drop palms from George's Fallbrook nursery, straight into the ground without having to wait for them to acclimate.  When it comes to the cycads, George's "farm" approach with huge inventory, allows him to offer not only the "type" of a species, but also the atypical, unusual and exceptional plants.  George is a great guy, who has taught me a lot about.  I always look forward to visiting his nursery, partially just to spend some time with George even though I know he is busy.  George does travel, but it's worth the weight to schedule a time when he is available!  A very nice Pseudophoenix sargentii ssp saonae var navassana with some cycads I purchased a while back from George.

I was wondering if anyone has had trouble getting in touch with this seller lately? I saw that they updated their for sale list and have since emailed at least four times, called at least three times, and have left messages over the last month to no avail. Is there a magic handshake or something, lol?

I've never had any response either - I gave up.  No idea how to get in touch, and no idea whether they ship.

I think he has been travelling a lot lately.  Great, knowledgeable guy with an amazing operation but I've had the same experience trying to coordinate a visit.  He is usually responsive so maybe it's just a temporary thing.
