Going to need a bigger box next year!
It really grew a lot over the winter
It's blooming big time!
No frost damage at all
We had a terrible winter! I wasn't sure it was going to make it without damage but not a bit of damage, it's like I just wrapped it and it grew a good foot or two over the winter.
This picture is from April 2013 when we unwrapped it last spring, you can see that it's almost touching the top of the box in this years pics.
Very nice palm. You did a great job with its protection. Doesnt look like it has even been through winter. That box is getting out of hand. Your going to have to switch to mummy wrapping in a few years.
NO! It will die lol, just make a taller box
Wow! That is one of the healthiest looking windmill palms I have seen. A lot healthier looking than mine and mine doesn't look bad at all. That must have been the ultimate protection.
Wow! What's your heat source for the box?
Just a little heater with a thermostat on it that kicks on when the temperature drops to 32, the key is to keep it dry. This tree has been in the ground about 6 years.
