No damage after last winter without any protection:

Thanks, but they are not the fastest growers at their shady place:

Looking good. What's the minimum temperature that occured since it's been planted out?

I can’t say anything about the minimum temps in Heidelberg (-15°C or so), but the worst thing that happened was the LONG LASTING severe dry freeze from February to March 2012 which led also to a deep-frozen soil.

The traces of last winter are now becoming visible:

      My fathers Trachycarpus takagii (T. wagnerianus x T. fortunei F1) flowered for the first time this year (female). He pollinated it with Trachycarpus wagnerianus and seeds appear to be developing. 
      Hoping the resultant backcross (T. takagii x T. wagnerianus) will stiffen the leaves further (more wind resistance) without significantly reducing leaf size.
      My father and I had a little chuckle at the irony because he was the first out of the two of us to produce a cross. I emigrated to Australia in 2019 to follow my dream to grow a wider variety of palms and create hybrids, yet my father (who’s not that interested in them) beat me to the punch in the UK.

      Montengro's excellent thread about digging palm babies and potting them inspired this one.
      In my time, I've planted too many (sometimes, way too many) of some palm, to realize later that it was a mistake. Sometimes years later. Sometimes, alas, the best thing is to harden your heart and do chain saw or lopper therapy and just remove the "extras."
      Other times, it makes sense to at least consider digging up a palm of suitable size and sufficient rarity and repotting and re-homing, to someone you hope will be a bit more careful than you.
      Here's a report on my basic experiences, including good and bad results. The rest of you are strongly urged to jump in and share. Particularly if you disagree, and who knows? Maybe I'll learn something.
      Unlike a ground-to-ground transplant, near-continental size rootballs, which muscle-men (and -women) with big cranes recommend, aren't an option. All of the plants were moved with small rootballs, i.e., small enough to shoehorn into a 15 or 20 gallon pot, maybe a 24" box.
       
      DYPSIS ONILAHENSIS "DROOPY"
      Once upon a time I planted about 10 of these in the ground, mostly from one-gallons. All grew great, but I wanted some room for other things. So, I dug a couple up with relatively small rootballs and stuck them in 10 and 15 gallon tubs, kept in the shade, watered, and prayed.
      And, lo! They survived and thrived without a problem. I eventually dug out most of them, and, eventually, sold them. If you bought one, let me know how it's doing. I hope okay. If not, that's important too.
       
      COCOTHRINAX BARBADENSIS/DUSSIANA
      Once again, 10 plants too many, and once again, dug a small rootball, stuck in pots. And, once again, success! No deaths.
       
      TRACHYCARPUS WAGNERIANUS
      I went yeti-poop and planted too many, and dug up all of them, six. Of these, one died, three have been sold and I still have two.
       
      AFTER DIGGING CARE
      Move the pot into the shade, keep moist, but not sodden, and most important, make sure the evil Santa Ana Wind doesn't hit them. Pack the dirt hard in the pot so water stays in and has time to soak the soil and stay long enough for the plant to drink it. If you get the rushing river syndrome after watering, pack in more dirt, repeat, till problem is fixed.
      Anyone else have any thoughts?

      I posted these on the EPS forum, thought I might as well post them here. Thanks for watching.

      After a mild winter my 7 deciduous Magnolia's and snake's head fritillaries are in full bloom. My Waggy's and Trachy's started to drop their blue seeds and new flowerstalks are on their way. Palms and Magnolia's make a perfect match in spring.
