New Windmill Palms - Eastern Pa
Hi everyone. New to the forums and have been finding all the info here to be very helpful and informative.
I purchased 2 new 48" Windmill Palms (Trachycarpus fortunei) from a seller in Florida. I planted them earlier this week in a large hole and filled it with super soil and sand blend in an effort to help drainage. Then mulched about 3" deep. Wrapped the trunks in burlap to help protect them from the cold mornings and frost warnings that we've been having up here in the Philly burbs.
Is there anything else I should be aware of? I bought some Jobes Palm fertilizer but have been told to wait about 2 months before fertilizing.
Anything else I should know? How should I care for them over the winter? Thanks everyone.
