Re: For Stan - Found a California Palm Climate Table

We had our wettest winter since 1982. They held up. Although a pre drought wet winter around 2008 Brandt? The variegated ammak did begin to lean. I propped u pthe base with a cinder block. Left it there for years. Last summer I removed it,the Ammak held fine. SO far,so good. I know they are known to have falling over problems. Maybe our clay soils hold tighter?
Andy in San Diego used to live in Hayward and had all kinds of things I never tried growing here. He swears the best Avocado trees are up here in the eastbay. They get pretty big I know that. 40' is not rare as you might think.
Now,if I can get some of the SF frost free winters to reach me...I'm trying everything.
oh- get this. Dracaena's with the striped leaves like "lemon twist"? Will grow here in ground. It took all last winters cold and rains. I'm thinking of tucking a few more in. But..later. I've been adding more then I planned.
Post more San Diego pics..everybody loves them. Find some big Uncarina's,Plumeria's,..so much down there.
