Re: August Update
Thanks Tommy! Windmills and all Sabals are protected. Sabal Minors only get an enclosure with leaves piled around them. My palmetto gets about the same except I wrapped in pipe insulation too.
My Windmill will get mini lights and a frost cloth with leaves piled around it. Also I plan to cover that with plastic to keep rain and snow out. Brad does something similar and it works for him.
Crapes are dieback for me so far but they grow back and flower nicely each year. I may mulch heavier this year. The winter before was mild and my Tuscarora crapes keep most of their above ground tissue alive. Hoping for mild this year for everyone!
