Thumbs up Anyone needing help with some landscaping...

I love landscaping and have been doing it for over twenty years, I can help with any questions. Palm Trees are beautiful and the Windmill Palm and European Fan Palm are my favorites, not because of their cold tolerance but the overall look of them is interesting. The weaving of their trunk is the most interesting part.

Question Orange Crownshaft Palm

Hi, I wanted to know if anyone has experience with the Sunset Palm. I live in Richmond and have an atrium that stays at 75 degrees consistently. I also have misters above to cover all my tropical plants. How much sunlight would one of these guys need? I have one at 7ft facing east. Also, do these Crownshafts like to be facing a certain direction of the sun? I paid a pretty penny for this one, I would feel so if my beautiful palm does not thrive. I put all of this effort together so please any and all information on this palm would be greatly appreciated. THX.

P.S It makes a great statement piece with it's striking orange stalk.

- Pete

Hello Peter, I have had trouuble myself trying to grow tropical fruits and plants in my greenhouse. As for a crownshaft, I dont know what your referring to, however, if its anything like a banana plant, then you can use heating wire or roofing wire for gutters (snow season) which when used along with a thermostat, you can crank it to 80 degrees (it brings it to 75 degrees) but it will keep your tropical plants alive most of the year. Then I open the top of my greenhouse during the spring season and cover them up during the harsh summer heat. So I would recommend heating wire which can be picked up at any hardware store for twenty bucks and this will keep a constant temp wherever you place it. This next spring season, I plan to use Solar panels to generate electric and connect them to heating wire to have a complete setup without the added electricity cost!

Hello, Sir I see you are a landscaper. I have a guest house out here in Williamsburg I wanted to make it look like Hawaii. I am particularly under a time schedule since I have family visiting for the holidays. My landscaper fell and injured his leg. The theme this year is Hawaii I need an estimate for making it look and feel tropical with as many exotic palms and bamboo plants as it takes. I really want to make it special since my dad in his 70's has leukemia and plants cure and heal. So anyway, I wanted to make this a tropical winter memory. Do you think you or anyone can come by for an estimate this week? anyone in Williamsburg 23186 area who can? Any help would be appreciated. my email is Lazydazy76'@gmail.com Thank you I look forward to hearing back from someone.

Post Some interesting info I found



Palm oil is a vegetable oil. Natural palm oil is red, but the red part is usually removed before the oil is used. It is made from the fruit of the African Oil Palm tree. Some comes from the American Oil Palm. Palm oil is used widely in products such as: ice cream, toothpaste, chocolate, candy etc. Thanks Wiki I had no idea

It is made from the fruit of the African Oil Palm tree. Some comes from the American Oil Palm.

Even though most eagles are carnivores, the African Vulturine Fish-Eagle mostly eats oil palm fruits.
