Question Buying palm trees for Ohio

I love palm trees especially when I go to florida and see them all over the place with lizards all over the place. I have done enough research online to find out that the best palm tree for ohio is the needle palm or the windmill palm, but my question is what it takes for the palm to survive the snowy winters and times of killer freeze. How can something green survive frostbite. What should I do to help protect the palm from dying? Some people said they wrap christmas lights around the palm to keep the trunk warm but ewhat if theres six foot of snow and the palm tree is completely buried? I dont know, I feel like I should put it in a pot and only bring it out for spring summer and august the rest of the time spend it inside with all the rest of the plants I have. Can windmill palms adjust to inside conditions if left out more than half the year?

Cool Its good to see another Buckeye Fan!

I have seen some palms around Cleveland and I didnt know what kinds they were but it was interesting to see palm trees. Buckeye Stud, you bring up good questions and I have no idea how they survive but after watching the show the Bachelor, they had palms in Seattle. So if they grow in Seattle they must grow here.

Cool quick afterthought

If I were you, I would keep the plants inside pots until you know for sure they will survive. Here is a link to the windmill palm info. I just read all about the windmill palm tree and how to take care of it. I hope that helps.

Default 3 palms planted!!!!!

Hello all. I live in Medina Ohio and have planted a windmill palm, a needle palm, and a saw palmetto (montana specie?). What I am looking for is watering/fertilizing advice and how to best protect them this winter. Was thinking of placing framing around them all and attaching plastic to it with a small opening in the bottom back portion. I was going to add a low voltage light to each, 50 watt, which will automatically turn on with an electric eye. Next to the light I was going to place gallon jugs of water which will heat and evaporate, ala green house, by the light at a slow pace. Anyone with advice please feel free to contact me. Thanks!!!!

Default Use pine needles or leaves and burlap for wintering

I would also spray some kind of insecticide so flies or small bugs dont get into the palm and eat away at the palm heart. Wintering a palm tree is easy, and its never fool proof, but also do not fertilize when you do winterize them. Thats just my experience.

Hi, I live in NE Ohio and bought a Christmas Palm from RPT this past August. It has been outside until October then moved it indoors. It has been beautiful and healthy. When we got it there were tiny flying bugs around the base that look like fruit flies. Since it was outside we didn't think much of it. After moving it indoors we thought the bugs would stop but they didn't and they are everywhere. We love the tree but hate the bugs and want to kill them without hurting the tree. The tree does seem to be stressed now as the fronds are turning brown. I did put up a hanging glue strip to catch what I can but that isn't going to kill them. This our first palm and don't want to lose it. Any help is much appreciated! Thanks
