Sabal Transplant


KsLouisiana

Recommended Posts

Hey experts! So question for y'all.  So my local landscape place has 10'-12' Sabals right now non regenerated for $425. Not a bad deal. I was wondering if y'all think its a good time to plant one mid September.  I have a perfect spot for one and really need one. Haha. Thoughts on if there's enough warmth left in the season in Southern Louisiana zone 9.  I guess it's similar to North or central Florida.  Thanks for the advice y'all!

That’s a big one! It’s going to look super cool in a year or two when it grows out! Keep us updated! 

Thanks man! Will definitely keep the updates coming. As well as the bismarck growing in a zone 9a... fingers crossed

In SC, they go for much cheaper than that. I got 2 of mine for $250 a piece.

Auch... I am wondering, will my wife divorce me if I will tell her that I am driving to SC to get some Palmettos? :D Of course I have another three problems here with doing this:

  1. I don't have a truck for doing this
  2. I will need help planting the Palmettos
  3. I am tired of digging over and over again in my backyard.... 

Let's say that the number 2 and 3 I can get over but I still don't have a truck which I would have to rent and I know the answer that I will be single after doing this, bye bye married life. :) 

Just checking right now... there are 1,172 miles from my house to Myrtle Beach (just picking up a location in SC). Let's say that I fly over there but I still have to drive 1,172 miles back home with the Sabals.

You guys can call me crazy but next spring I am thinking about taking a vacation there with my wife and after that driving and getting home with a rental truck one day after my wife probably.

But again, who has these Sabal Palmettos for these prices in SC?

Haaa. That all sounds like alot of work/risk.   But alot of reward...haha.  But for real on Facebook marketplace there's someone in Houston selling them for $375 and someone in Fort Worth selling them for $120 supposedly....not bad.  And the best part is the wife might still keep ya around!

Second ad is $120 per foot,8 ft minimum...  But first ad looks like a good deal in Houston.

I contacted the first seller, the add is posted 25 weeks ago though....that means March after the stupid winter storm passed. :) Time to wait and see if he will answer.

@edit: it seems that he is on 1331 Crosstimbers St in Houston, by looking on google it also shows a photo with some Sabals. :)

The prices are between $280 (6 to 9 ft. trunk) and $340 (10 to 12 or 13 ft.) for them. They are not regenerated, just freshly dug up from the field. I need to figure out who can install them for me if I pull the trigger on two of them. They are a wholesaler, they have about 84 out of 114 which they got in the other day. They have also some installers that they work with that charge about $375 to $425 to transport and install a palm tree.

I need to think about this now while it's still hot in my mind. :)
