When to over winter windmill palm?
Hope everyone is good. hope everyone in tri state area escaped Sandy without to much damage!
Today NYC is recieving there first snow storm. Since this my first year growing my 4th windmill palm, i was curious when i should over winter my palm that is planted in the ground.
I already built a wood box surrounded by black plastic to keep out the elements of sandy. but took it off after the storm. put it back over the palm this morning, to protect from the comming snow storm. My niebor gave me a bale of hay, that he was throwing out. so i have the waterproof box & bale of hay. The hay has not been used yet in the box. What next??? I would hate to see my palm die, especially after all the care i gave it this summer. I guess im really asking when & how to over winter my palm. Thanks for the help. Bobby
