Default Palm Tree Nightmares, cant sleep thinking about the palms I ordered.

I purchased 8 palms earlier today, under their summer sale buy 3 get 1 free thing. So I got 8 palms for the price of 6. And the shipping price stayed was included, so I made out good with prices. I have never bought palms either for the DC area. I want to be the only one in Washington D.C. with real winter palm trees outside in my yard during winter. I was skeptical, however I did alot of research and found out everything about the windmill palm trees and the european fan palm trees. They both are extremely cold hardy and can withstand the snow, I was very surprised at the price as well as the winter temperature. So thats the reason I cant sleep tonight, maybe buyers remorse or something. I just really want them to survive the winter at least the larger part of winter. This winter hopefully we have a reusable Christmas tree that's in the shape of a palm tree.

Default I find that very funny, I had to join to post something back to you!

You are not the only one that will have palm trees in Washington DC my neighbor who lives near Montrose Park, has some palm trees. I don't know what type they are but they have been there for at least a couple of years. The next time I see him, I will ask him what type they are. Also, hang in there instead of counting sheep, count palm trees to sleep!

Default How did you make it through the night.lol

I did not know palm trees could survive the winters in DC thats a new one for me. Normally we just have oak trees in the rear yard. Montrose Park is a very nice park to take your children to as well. They have nice swings and other kids they can play with. And also if you walk inwards in the park , the sounds of bustling cars and planes disappears.. Georgetowns hidden gem!

Default Ohh I made it, throught the night

I just tracked my package UPS and it says it will be here wednesday. Man so your friend beat me to the punch! When you talk to him can you ask him what type palm trees he has and how he kept them from freezing. Montrose Park is fantastic and there is a cabbge palm growing in between the path way and the main swingsets. Try to find it, it stands out like a sore thumb! So if a cabbage palm can grow here then I am pretty sure windmill palms and european palms can live here as well!

Oak trees are nice especially during winter when leaves start to drop. Very beautiful looking. Also the red maple tree is gorgeous looking during autumn season. The red turns like fiery red when the sun sets. I would love to grow some maples if I had more space.

Default Excellent information

I have read it on somewhere that palm tree can withstand the severe winter climate of Washington DC. My neighbor owns palm trees in the outside of his yard here in Washington Dc. So, I think it is encouraging for the people who want to buy palm trees. I read in SleepRex guide that palm oil is very helpful for having good sleep.

Lightbulb Pennsylvania Palms

Here in Pennsylvania you can have Palm trees you just have to know what and how to grow them.
For example I have the Lipstick. I need a grow light for the winter. I keep it on 2-3 hrs a day. If I forget its no big deal.(I recently set it up to a 3 hr timer so I don't need to remember to keep turning it on/off.)
I need to keep it indoors until the weather gets warmer. Usually till May/June when its above 60 outside.
I make sure the soil is always moist the Lipstick likes to have plenty of water so I just fill up the container 2 times a week.
I always make sure I Fertilize right before I place it outside so around May/June.
I do not put it directly under an air vent when its inside because the heater can dry out the palms soil.If your palm like the shade like the Lipstick when outdoors put it in a shady spot. I keep my palm in a planter so I can play around with where I want to place it. You don't need a green thumb to have palm's in Pennsylvania just use commonsense Palms like tropical environments and so do we.
