thats different, its when chicagopalma starts talking about dactys, robustas, and queens

If you have to give palms such as Trachycarpus protection, you could just protect a robusta instead. Probably doable with a structure and c9 lights.

Good idea and makes sense, at least for a while and in early stages. But the problem just moves backwards ... what does one do when the palm is so big (with your mentioned tools) you would have to build a skyscraper to keep it alive? just in theory but yes: effort and benefit are out of proportion.

We've been discussing this before but down the road it's up to him to make those decisions and I'd rather encourage than discourage to grow palms in a non suitable zone . I like to know for how long he can keep his palms alive.

That's a idea but has to be protected almost 2 months longer when you actually do it. One month earlier and one month later.
