7A Mule progress over years

Recommended Posts

Progress of the 7A mule.   Pretty happy with how it is doing so far.  In winter it took some frond spotty damage but outgrew it by now.  It went thru 9F in protection.

@Allen About the third time I’ve had to tip my hat to you! That makes me realize I haven’t scratched the surface yet. #palmlord

Nice work!  Do you wrap/unwrap based on weather or keep it bundled up all winter?

It had to be covered about 4 times last winter for a total of around 7-10 days, 2-3 days at a time.  Lights stay on it I just unzip this cover.  As it grows the trunk will get wrapped up and the cover will move up till it's too big to cover or it dies.

Gotta ask, where did you get the palm jacket? It looks like a modeling clay water tower :) Was it designed for plants or is it repurposed? I'm in zone 6 and have a takil in the ground,plan on heating cables or Christmas lights and that jacket looks like what I need to complete it. To be fair it's only a 5 gallon I got from Phil at jungle music but hopefully in a couple years I could use one that size

It's a patio heater cover.  Look on Amazon.  but for long term in zone 6 I'd recommend the box method for you.  The covers can hold moisture if you're not careful.
