Re: A wonderful visit to Gary's Nursery in New Bern, NC

You could've helped me a lot if I knew you were heading there . I was going to get a couple Birminghams and Trachys from him in the coming few weeks . Then I could've met you in Charlotte for the 1.5 hour drive to pick them up .
He really is a nice guy , and I got the grand tour last time I was there about 5 years ago .
How did his Palmettos and other palms do after the winter before last when his highs and lows during that 9 day period were similar to mine , and didn't reach 32F most of the time ? Just to the south in Wilmington was way milder , but I was amazed when I noticed that New Bern was just as bad as I was during that period .
Any pictures ?
