Palm Trees

Dear Anne:

We got palm trees from a farm in South Carolina, when is the best time to plant them and how should we take care of them. We live in Rockwell NC.

Thank You,
Elizabeth C.

Anne's response:

I would ask the farm from which you purchased them for planting instructions .It is usually best to get plants in the ground as quickly as possible after purchase. Some palms are not winter-hardy in all parts of Zone 7 – and I think Rockwell is in the Zone 7-a, or colder part of the zone 7. You might check with some of the nurseries in the Kannapolis area to see if they think the plants you have will grow in your area.
