Summer Recovery


Recommended Posts


@jwf1983 Here’s the pic I promised…you can see how my south face works best for my palms…Recovery for the Trachy and the Brazoria went well this summer. The Trachy and Brazoria lost at least 95% of their fronds after the 2022 Christmas freeze. Their emerging spears suffered total damage where exposed. But they’ve all recovered well…Plan on lighting their crowns this winter and covering the emerging spears with pipe insulation sliced up the side if super cold moves in. The Medi (green variety) will get a separate post as its near death experience this past winter has moved me to get back to serious protection for it. Looks like the Black Shroud is back in play.



I have another small Trachy entering its 3rd winter in ground…that winter cage protection I told you about for yours will be used on mine this winter as well.
