Now that we are past the holidays we can look to the spring. That is, once the Seahawks win the Superbowl! Then it's time to start making plans for what we will be doing in the garden this year. We will be having our grand opening sale in March with a farm full of palms. This year we have a special surprise that we have been working on for ten years. Stay tuned.
The Pacific Northwest is experiencing an unusual dry spell, therefore
palm trees and plants in containers may need to be watered.
Hi there Palm Tree Fans, it's now winter and the temperatures are dropping. Here is what you need to do with your palms. Find your favorite warm beverage recipe and make one for yourself and the others in your home. Windmill palms are cold hardy to 3 to 5 degrees.
Some will tell you to wrap them, some will tell you to put lights on them. The lights make the palms very pretty. I prefer green up lights and white on the trunks. Wrapping the palms can kill your palm and we see it every year. It traps moisture and promotes bacterial growth. This can kill the palm even if treated in spring.
Best thing you can do for the cold hardiness of your palms is to fertilize your palms in spring and fall.
See ya in Spring.
We are providers of Cold Hardy Palms to the Pacific Northwest. We have a large selection of tall Chinese Windmill Palms. These are the most popular Northwest palm trees. Easy to take care of and hardy down to 5 degrees.

Winter is a great time to plant palm trees. This is the time of year that our Northwest palm trees are generating roots and the crown is dormant. By planting at this time of year and proper fertilization, the palms will be ready to grow in the spring. We are distributors of Lutz Palm Tree Fertilizer spikes, a great and simple way to keep your palms and sagos healthy.
Fertilizer. Spring and Fall is the time to Fertilize. Your palms can't live on water alone. Palm trees need a couple of micro-nutrients that are not found at high enough levels in our soil. Manganese and Magnesium are very important to the health of palms. We sell "Palm Tree Fertilizer Spikes" that work very well and are just about as simple to use as it can get. Take the recommended number of spikes out to your palm tree, drive them into the ground with a hammer and you’re done.

ONLINE ORDERING OF FERTILIZER IS NOW AVAILABLE,
Bananas. We are proud to make available Musa Basjoo Banana plants. These bananas are commonly referred to as Cold Hardy Bananas. I have had these in my yard for the past eight years and they have produced fruit.
Hibiscus. We have tested these plants for the past three years with fantastic results. These Hibiscus are perennials and very cold hardy. They die back in the winter and come on like gangbusters in late spring. In our test garden, we were amazed by the sheer number of blossoms that bloomed on the plants. Their flowers come in a variety of colors, Red, White, Yellow, Blue, Plum, Purple and Gold.
Dracaenas. We are pleased to let you know that we will have this foliage for your garden this spring. We sell out of this plant every year by about the fourth of July.
Cannas. These are a very tropical perennial hardy to -20 degrees. The foliage is striking with green, bronze and variegated leaves. Blooms are red, yellow, orange and pink with many having a blend of these colors.

We have Windmill Palms in the 10 to 15 foot range that are grown in wood boxes and are ready to plant without any transplant shock.
The reason we raise our palms in boxes rather than field grown is for the health of the palm. When palms are dug up they lose up to 75% of their root system and the palm tree goes into shock. The recovery will take years to get it back to health.
WE ARE NOW ON FALL/WINTER HOURS
