A few free palms - come dig em up

I'm going through the yard and removing a few palms that don't seem to be 100% happy. I'm looking to dig these up ASAP to make room for new plantings. Come and help dig them, bring a few pots and they're yours. PM for details, directions. First come, first served.

Licuala Ramsayi

All 3 of these got a bit beat up this past winter, but should recover nicely if put in a good micro-climate and given some TLC. I'd rather give them away and give them a second chance then throw them in the greens bin.

I might have a couple more as well, so whoever comes to get these might end up with some more if interested.

Dewd, that L. ramsayi don't look too bad. I bet with a few more years and a tad bit more water you'd have a nice specimine.

Nickolas - Thanks for stopping by to pick those up. always good to see you and it's nice to see those planted out at your place already.

Matty - yeah, I think it could get better looking, but decided to put a Dypsis Hovomantsina in it's place. I do have another Licuala in my greenhouse that is looking great, so maybe I will find another place for it one day.
