Our custom-made winter protection covers are designed to protect hardy palms against cold Canadian winters! These have been battle-tested in zone 6 Ontario with various varieties of hardy palms using traditional zone-pushing techniques.
Our zone-pushing tutorial can be found here:
Simply select the small or large size, with or without a PVC frame. If a frame is not purchased, a simple low-cost frame can be built with 2x3 wood. PVC frames include center braces that anchor the frame to the palm tree. Additionally we suggest anchoring the frame to the ground using stakes.
A heat source (C9 incandescent Christmas lights), a temperature controller (Thermocube) and extension cord are not included.
Key features of our winter covers include:

- Dark green colour blends into landscape while absorbing heat from sun
- Velcro opening makes opening and closing easy when temperatures fluctuate
- Built-in vent allows for adequate airflow inside the cover
