Anyone have success with Mules in 7b/8a?
Posted by Jason Atlanta on 4/4/2017, 11:16 pm
Have an opportunity to pick up two 15 gallon for $199 each and/or two 30 gallon for $279 each. Definitely not inexpensive, can probably negotiate a lower price for multiples, but that's a lot of money to throw away for one Summer. I really want them, but am I being overzealous? I live on the 7b side of the 7b/8a area just North of Atlanta in Sandy Springs. I'd plan to protect during winter with burlap and lights as needed. I used to push the zones in Jacksonville, but haven't really tried here. The house is South facing with no room in front and HOA probably wouldn't like the protected winter look anyways, so would have to be put on the Northern facing side of the house with some protection from Western cold winds in Winter. The house is four elevations in the back and two upfront, so a severe elevation drop where palms would be planted in as close proximity to the house as reasonably possible. Outside of the natural environment, they would be well cared for. The new house has a pool as well and I'm envisioning a "tropical" paradise. Am I over reaching and throwing money away?
