Question Buying some palm trees for my yard, any ideas

Just bought a home and new to being south of the Big City, never bought palm trees before and wanted to know what kinds would do good in Charlotte. I would like to get the palm trees that I have seen at the Casinos in Atlantic City, the date type palms. Would they do good here?

Exclamation Palms and Bananas !!!

My wife and I have been growing both Palms,(windmills and special jellys), here in Denver, N.C. !! If you check, we are in the foothills of NC., and have had to deal with neasayers for years but we are doing it fo over 20 years!! All of our seeds and plants come from our own stock but have really proven to be the stuff!! This year I already have bananas on the plant in the 1st week of June. Obviously, we will be eating Nanas soon. Do not let anyone tell ya it can not happen here!! It has for us, and we plan on it continueing for many years !! I could use some help though, I have about 20 Windmills growing in our field, they are from 4 foot high to almost 20 foot high, that I would luv to get moved closer to thew house??? Anyone know someone with a tree spade, the type that is powered by a bobcat or backhoe, or something like that?? I would like to move some of these trees, and am willing to make a trade of sorts for that person??? Can anyone help with this, the wife and I are wanting these up by the house and they are definately cold-hardy, and want nothing to happen to them in the move ??

Question Soft spots on trunk

I have had a 15ft. Sabal palm for 3 years and just in the past few weeks have had two greenish brown soft spots show up at top of trunk about 10inches under the boots. Both are slowly getting bigger and can push in about 1/2 inch, spots size of an average males hand. Lots of new groth still coming up just yellow tips on some, older palms already out. Also have other palms in same area that are different kinds and all in good shape. Any ideas what or how to save it? Thanks for the help.

Default Am I able to put a European fan palm in my back yard next to my pool?

I am thinking of purchasing a couple of European fan palm trees for my backyard where I have my pool. My only concern is does anyone know if it will mess with my pool if the fronds decide to fall inside the pool? Will it damage my pool what so ever? Does RealPalmTrees.com ship to North Carolina? I am very interested and need some questions answered. Thank you!

Same here Im looking for the same type of date palms. I live in Hickory but my office is in Raleigh. About how much do these date palms weigh? I was thinking of keeping them at my home in Hickory and letting them grow a bit then transporting them myself in the range rover over to my office in Raleigh? Is this a good idea?

I believe the windmill palm, needle palm, Mediterranean fan, chinese fan, pindo, true date texas sabal, mexican fan, and cuban royal palms are the ones that survive the winters. All of which give you the look of having tropics.

Im from Asheville. The Pygmy Date Palm grows nice here. I havent had any problems with it since I got it in late 2007. I know they like lots of water so if you keep it watered it will look real full and they do like alot f sun but in the winter months I keep mine inside the temps are always in the mid 60s in my house during the winter and I take her back out in the Spring.

Here some additional info I found on the Pygmy Palm
care for a pygmy date palm, be sure to maintain a regular watering schedule and plant this tree in sandy, well-drained soil in an area of sun all the way to full shade. When grown in soil with a pH over 7, the tree may develop magnesium or potassium deficiency with symptoms of chlorotic or spotted fronds.

Mine did this and I added some palm nutrient spray I got just spray a little of that and palms are green and beautiful also it helps them if you leave em out in the cold like I did and it beefed em back up.
