Right now I have two 7-gal sabal minors and a trachy planted out that I'm worried about. The Sabals are protected by those green Nuvue tarps [ironically, the protection deflected the wind-driven snow we've gotten, so the ground is bare around them]. The Trachy is protected by a rose cone stuffed with dry leaves [it's still small enough for this to work].
Will that be enough?
I'm toying with the idea of uncovering the trachy, wrapping xmas lights around the palm, and covering it up again with the rose cone/leaves. I've never done this before so I'm not sure if that's overkill or if I'll cook the plant.
Should I go to the trouble? I also have toe warmers for the Sabals (desperate times, eh?) but I'm not sure if they'll be effective.
