Hello,

When do you guys remove the winter protection (boxes in my case) from your zone 8 palms?

Like, at what minimum or average (between day & night) temperature?

Planted palms: Sabal minor, W. Robusta (Mexican Fan Palm, my favourite!), Windmill, Pindo, Needle, European Fan, Sago palm, Saw Palmetto

Inside during winter: Majesty, Cat palm, Chinese fan palm, Pygmy Date palm

I'd do it when the temperatures are in the mid-40s at night and there's no frost, or if it drops into the 30s, then it should be so brief that by the time it does, it's already going back up above freezing. You really just have to look at the forecast, take a gamble, and know whether you need to cover things back up.

I did just looked at the temperatures for New Jersey, and personally, I'd probably go ahead and uncover, but I looked at new jeresy in general so I don't know what temperatures your seeing specifically. 😋

For the Euro Fan and the Pindo when I look at my last 20 years weather and I don't see temps lower than 20F past the date you uncover or at least more than a couple freak events.
