Howdy everyone. ( I absolutely love this forum and The people that come with it )
Anyways, I was out and about today with my neighbor. While out riding around, we had went to a part of the county where Sabal Minors are everywhere but anywhere else in the county are few and far . Well I literally can spot out Sabal Minors in the woods, As we're driving by .
Long story short, I got myself one that I personally dug out. For as long as I can remember, Sabal Minor has been on the top of my Must Have Palm Tree lists.
So, here I am, Asking for Advice/Help with the best proper transplanting for said Palm. Basically I do not want this to die.
Removing the fronds, would be a good idea? Let the water trickle on it every night until dawn, for how many weeks?
Here's the Sabal Minor that I have dug out. Like to get y'all's opinion.
Thank you!! Oh and Yes It's currently in my Pond for the protection of the roots, So that the roots will not dry out/up resulting in a confirmation for dying.

My Areca catechu Dwarfs and Semi-Dwarf are looking happy now the FL heat, humidity and, soon, rain are here. Well, all but one that is planted on the NE side of the house. I hope it cheers up when rainy season starts. Our lowest low last winter was 41F but we had weeks of dreary, funky weather and tropicals hate that. You must remember that while occasional cold nights can injure or kill, a long stretch of chilly, cloudy weather can kill them, too. But that was last winter; summer in SWFL is here. I planted them last fall after I realized they were unhappy in their pots. I'd love to germinate more for pot growing.

Areca catechu Dwarf #3 - maybe a bit too much morning sun
Areca catechu Semi-Dwarf - about 7' to 8' tall. Don't overlook one of these
