the tropical palm shuffle!
With shorter and cooler days I have moved my three coconuts and 2 bottle palms to the side of the house. With these cool nights I want them getting direct sun ASAP. They are positioned about 50 feet southeast of their summer positions. I have also turned them 90 degrees. Now they start getting direct sune at about 8:00 instead of 11:00 They are now getting about as much sun as they did in early July. The weather has been on the edge as far as leaving them outside. We got heavy rains last night and it only fell to about 60. Sunny and 69 tomorrow and up to mid-70s for the weekend and 80 by Tuesday. They may be out of sight but I'm trying to squeeze as much growth as I can. With any luck October will give us some 80s or even high 80s which is not out of the question.
