Trachycarpus Fortunei and Musa Ice Cream
Ok, so I bought a Trachycarpus fortunei for about 100 dollars and it is 5 feet tall from a local garden center. I plan to plant it out here and going to put Burlap and Mulch on it. It will be near my pool and so is my Musa Ice Cream. My question is, should I go ahead and plant the Windmill Palm, or wait till spring? My Musa Ice Cream was planted a few weeks ago and I would like to know how much mulch I should use and when. I am in Southampton, NY close to the tip of long Island. I would like to know what other tropicals I cold grow here. I will put pics of my Musa Ice Cream and Trachycarpus later. One more question, I might buy a Musa Basjoo, but if I do, will I need to protect that at all?
