Started a yard thread last year in worldwide palms. Everything I grow is cold hardy lol, more appropriate section :D 

***There’s more than just palms here, what you will see is raw garden footage and pics, I’m not going to weed or sweep or hide stuff that’s normally out***

There’s never a perfect time to take a video. This is good enough time as any other. I didn’t watch before I posted, because I for sure would have deleted it and tried to make again. If I inadvertently swore or said something someone doesn’t like I apologize lol.

Cool more of the big Louisiana/minor came up.  You need to put this on youtube because here you have to download it.  The raised bed at beginning is nice.  You do need a greenhouse!  Those dwarf minors are tiny.  My dwarf just grow SUPER slow.

Looks good! You should definitely make a YouTube channel to showcase your plants!

Thanks you sir! Uploading it now, and I’ll repost, thank you for telling me, looks normal on my end. Really need the palm to face emoji on here!

I’ve been debating it for a while, maybe just super low key. Thank you by the way!!

Here’s some before and after pics

This is where the rostrata bed is now. That was the first minor project I started, was a few raised beds out of landscape timbers September 20134B1CFEA8-228F-499C-92BB-12CCBDFC737B.thumb.jpeg.ed6f5a884cf76050defccf55b01d0fb3.jpegIn progress December 201362E8A849-C8F9-4970-BB35-69DA20B530F0.thumb.jpeg.0968be8fe95dcc417dacaa5a7f7c71b8.jpeg05907BAC-EC92-4472-A4D4-B61240F4D09A.thumb.jpeg.cf1173940059e95fd55f8032bd01e27c.jpegThis is a year after starting to plant this bed, you can see the size of the rostratas at that point April 2015B20556EB-0549-4EA4-8DAA-DA3339023B2E.thumb.jpeg.8b9f3cf20ddfc53962bdb8c5248116d6.jpegHere it is now June 2022CF55FF6A-A32B-4A16-9D51-E6F9B4B45F5A.thumb.jpeg.2e91e61e03a8089e46ec6c3689ccf637.jpegI’ve got yearly pics of most of my plants, I did a whole progression of the rostratas above in another thread, but never showed any of these beds like this.

They’re cool from the start imo though :shaka-2:if you can grow a needle do it :D

The wife and I caught the elephant ear bug this year!! We’ve been messing with standard green esculenta for a bunch of years, we’ve got a few more now. 
Theo in front of standard esculenta left, and an Aloha right that @Allen was kind enough to give me early spring. E4F4D305-7BBA-4785-B278-ED3CC9850BD5.thumb.jpeg.c0676258936fbdbf1ea5780a2666bc08.jpeg

      Yes, indeed…a few Brazoria seeds forming…I see now how it works on this palm…one male stalk and one female, same palm. Let’s see what I end up with this fall…Question: Should I winter the seeds outside in a dry cabinet then sprout in the spring? There aren’t very many but if I have any to share I will once I see what makes it to fall.

      Does Butia Catarinensis have a glaucous, bluish cast to it?

      Little 2 leaf seedling no big deal….Just wanted to move the pot over in the bed it was sitting on and definite resistance…slowly pulled the pot straight up, somehow didn’t break the root, and out comes this monster!!Then took it out of the pot and it did a complete 360 around the bottom of the pot before it found its way outUnreal, true desert palm, drilling deep for water, easily add another 6” of depth if it didn’t circle the pot first. Has to be a factor in their overall hardiness as wellInto a deep pot ya go

      What are the light requirements of a spring sprouted Butia…it’s pushing out its second strap leaf and is in full sun…it was a fortuitous find and I want to treat it properly.

      Was watering and weeding this morning and noticed the wet, sunny Needle and the Brazoria trunks’ have really grown…the needle in height and the Brazoria in diameter. There are two other Needle trunks behind the one in the photo that are pretty tall as well, though lagging behind the one here.

      The Brazoria trunk really thickened as it pushes two flower spikes and four new fronds…by season’s end it will have four fully released fronds…given its slow history, this is amazing…guess that taproot finally reached its destination…

      Happy to have a Needle clumping palm that is establishing a trunk since zone 7 doesn’t harbor a climate for a variety of trunking palms…same for the trunking Brazoria…these are two that can have their trunks shown off, if you have the time to wait…Question for you Texas folks…generally speaking, how did Brazorias do during the freeze? Do they seem to rank among the survivors?
