Pygmy Date Winter Protection???
I have a Pygmy Date palm i got at a Kmart for $14! heres a pic. it isnt this big because i cut it back a little. it is in a pot in my garage for winter but it rotted along with a butia a friend gave me! :( i poured Daconil Fungal Killer in them and my friend says they should come back. if they do, i plan to separate one of the trunks from the clump of Pygmy Dates and try it in the ground and see if i could get them to live where i do. whatwould i have to use as protection? i dont think i would be interested in making a mini greenhouse. i was thinking about tying the leaves up and wrapping the whole thing in clear plastic wrap and putting mulch at the bottom. would this work??? i hope it does. i think they are so pretty and it would be great if they could live where i do!!! also, if anyone has any pics they would like to share, please do.
