Maybe the Bonsai Effect on Palmettos is due to unseen damage to the trunk that restricts the flow of water and nutrients to the bud .
I can't believe I didn't put a couple strands of Xmas lights on them and a few blankets .
I'm going to get another Palmetto next spring from a more northerly provenance . I've already talked to them and they say they get there palms from Bald Head Island sourced seeds . Their company is near Wilmington , NC ( I forgot the name of the company ) .
