Re: might my 3ft Trachycarpus fortunei die if in a pot during wint

I had four trachies last autumn. Three in pots and one in the ground. The one in the ground is the only one alive....just.

If it looks cold and especially wet/snowy just move it into a greenhouse, cool conservatory or even a garage or shed then back out when the cold passes.

Re: Palm seedling hardiness

Our Trachycarpus & Phoenix canariensis_CIDP seedlings have been outside since the end of March. The trachies only have 1 or 2 leaves, the CIDPs are bigger. It's too hot in the greenhouse. Put them outside they'll love it and you'll have lots of room. :D

Re: Trachycarpus - replace or wait

being a Trachycarpus i might give it a nitrogen boost.not advisable for palms due to the soft growth it produces but any green out the top will speed up its recovery and seeing how hardy trachies are normally,the new growth might just survive next winter
