Is this is Palmyra (Camden County )? That would be South Jersey, if so.

I love to see the updates on these palms! They look so great! Im glad to see them doing well especially without being given special protection!
Thanks for sharing!

If you look at a map it's actually central Jersey. South Jersey would be Atlantic City or Cape May. North Jersey would be Sussex, Newark, Jersey City. I don't mean to sound curt - it just looks like central to me lol. They are not sabal palmettos, they are: Needle Palms, Sabal Minors, and Trachycarpus Fortunei.

Well, can't vouch for Palmyra, but I'm in central coastal Jersey to be sure (southern Monmouth County). Here are just a few pics...

Had this cactus for awhile now. If someone could ID it, great. Believe it's ready to flower.

My Niagara grape vine doing very well this year...

Plumeria showing off...

And my windmill, referenced in an earlier post about the drooping fronds. The weight of all the snow this past Winter did them in some. Still debating if I should just prune or not. That fig tree to the left just gets bigger and thicker when I prune it...

Not curt at all. I grew up very nearby. Philly suburbs are considered South Jersey. Central is more like Trenton and Monmouth.

Great pix. Thanks for sharing.

Your trachy looks great. It looks better than the trachy up here in the Bronx. No prob wetsuiter.

People that don't know about cold hardy palms
(or even do)must be amazed to
drive by and see palms growing there! (-:

Did you see the trachy loaded with fruit? Here it is.

The palms at Palmyra Cove received their midsummer 10-10-10 fertilizer & epsom salts this week.

Nice! I can't believe that palms can grow in Jersey without protection. There's one here in the Bronx that is not protected and looks pretty bad. However, I think it does look bad because it's not against a wall (micro-climate). The one in Queens died because it was facing north and snow was piled on it as if it weren't even there. There's a small takil in the Bronx too that is not protected and is not in a micro-climate and is doing very well. I have pic on my other post (http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/load/palms/msg012045404389.html)

I met the guy who planted and tends these palms at a garden party yesterday in Rehoboth Beach, Del. Several other palm enthusiasts were there including the hosts. Their 15' windmills were impressive. I'll post pics later.
