There so many in my garden
By Efrain Casellas
I just got a Sylveter palm installed a week ago and i notice upon delivery it had a couple of brown leaves, i didn't think much of it because of the exitement , but now it have more brown leaves to the point of concern, is this normal? is it something that i can do to fix this issue?
The installer told my wife and i to water it twice a day 15 min in the morning 15 on the afternoon but how do i now if thats enough or may be is to much?
Here are some pictures i know is dark sorry and the last 2 pictures are from when we got it at the nursery , can someone please help me with this? Thanks
Personally, for me it is the always impressive Canary Island Date Palm, with runners up including Nikau Palm and Trachies (due to their ability to grow in so many normally non palmy places). Of course it is hard to not mention the coconut palm in this list as well.
Being from Michigan, I want to learn about more types of palms that I have probably never seen, and I want to see some of your favorites!
As an aside I also wanted to thank this community for teaching me so much about palms, as I have a new appreciation and obsession for them, and I CANNOT WAIT to go to Fort Myers next week to see how many palms I can recognize after seeing them here. Cheers!!
I woke up to news Cape Coral has been issued a freeze warning for overnight Sunday - thanks, Alexa. Gets better and better all the time. I got nearly a 1/2 acre densely planted with palms that haven't experienced lows below 40F in 5-6 years or more and nothing below 37F since 2010. If my bad luck holds it may be the end of the world for many of them. But if my luck changes for the better and the forecast lays an egg you won't find me complaining.
But to focus my anxiety I went out and took "Before" photos for future reference. Up until a week ago, winter had been deceptively benign. I know, you really can't fool Mother Nature.
I'll start with our Back Yard Jungle, aka "World's Smallest Jungle." It is situated facing south on a little ridge overlooking the equally distinguished "Isabelle Canal", our 80' wide freshwater canal (fact: Cape Coral is home to 400 miles of salt- and freshwater canals, basins, weirs, boat locks and lakes that earn it the monikers "Venice of the South" and "Water Wonderland"). The back of our house shields the jungle from north winds. The winter sun moderates incoming cold fronts - usually.
