I really enjoy seeing what you have accomplished and one of the great feats is that you have done this in Virgina Beach. I like the idea of a big greenhouse for potted palms to overwinter and the technique of planting a palm on an angle. Where on earth did you buy all these palms?

I also would still keep in mind some cold protection ideas just in case some artic air ever dips your way. I would perhaps delay cleaning the trunks of washys and other palms until they had a full year to establish and thus be more cold tolerant.

If you still have room, how about a potted coconut palm? I grew a real large one in a pot here in NYC.

Looking good!
What a collection!-
and we get to watch your dog grow up,I
feel like I have known him since he was a pup!
Looks like he's waiting for coconuts in the pic with your CC-nut palm.
What kind of banana is that in the second to last picture?

Thank you all for the very nice comments! i appreciate them all. knotz-what part of washington do u live in?
Brooklyn- thanks again... yeah i was born in my mothers house here in va beach and still live in va beach. i got tired of seeing her house with the same landscaping as everyone else bushes and shrubs also huge trees, too many...anyway especially when i love palms so i changed her yard. I will start the greenhouse soon its kinda in my head haha. i bought the palms all over some down south personally, some e-bay, some online nurseries, friends. I definitely agree with you totally about the cleaning the trunks, i mainly did that washingtonia becase the trunk was sooo messed up anyway i couldnt look at it any longer. I will definitely have many cold protection methods eespecially the first few years, trust me i will have mrs laura's help for protection hesr are perfect as everyone has seen!
My dogs name is Irie (jamaica...) and she is 71/2 months english retriever. shes always around with me everywhere obsessed with outside life.thanks jimhardy she has grown sooo fast! the banana is musa orinocco.
i have a huge list of palms i want soon as im sure many of us do! so ill keep you posted thanks again for the comments! -Justin in VB
