How to winterize cold-hardy palm trees outdoors anywhere in Canada

 

Are there other ways to grow hardy palm trees in Canada?

You can also grow hardy palm trees in pots. Although these cannot be left outdoors year-round, you have a few options during the winter:

  1. Put them into your garage for the winter. Ensure the garage temperature stays above freezing.
  2. Grow them as a large houseplant inside for the winter.
  3. Pay to have them stored at a local greenhouse for the winter.

 

Can I grow tropical palm tree varieties in Canada?

Tropical palm trees are typically grown in large pots. These are frost sensitive plants, and you have the following options for winter:

  1. Pay to have them stored at a local greenhouse for the winter.
  2. Keep them inside your home or heated garage/shop for winter. (They will do much better if under grow lights)
  3. Throw them out and replace with fresh palms each spring. (Yes many people do this too!)

 

Do you offer a warranty for the plants?

No, we can only guarantee that you receive the plants in healthy condition. If you're worried about losing your plant during the winter, we recommend buying a smaller plant that you can afford to replace or using a lower-risk method such as bringing your plant inside for the winter. In some cases a warranty may be purchased or included when hiring us to protect your palms for you.

 

How does the order process work? Do I have to pre-order?

Most of our plants are imported in small amounts and we do not carry any inventory of them. If you're interested in ordering, pre-ordering will guarantee that we will have your plant for you in the spring. We contact you when your plant has arrived and is ready for pick-up/shipping. We will carry some inventory of smaller plants in the spring, checkout our website starting in May to see what we have available.
