    • 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.

Under beach umbrella for canopy!

Minor spotting.

3' - 4' OA on these three...

I honestly thought they'd just melt away this morning...

Any frost?

Btw, what kind of mulch is that one?

I kept the frost off with a beach umbrella Rafael.

My bamboo canopy should be big enough by next winter to provide the canopy they'll need...

It's cypress mulch.

I wimped out. 85% of my potted palms (along with the King hybrid you gave me) & my Mango went into the garage, which never got below 52. I covered up a few of the palms in the yard. I think it only got to around 28 and I didn't get any frost. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I had minimal, if any damage.
