Hi, I am wondering how the winter fared for those out there in the lower mainland or island in BC? I had two lovely 5 feet tall windmills and one 3 foot tall windmill. As well, a Butia Capitata. 2 of the 3 windmills died (fungus it seems), and yet the smallest one survived. The Butia also died as the centre spear rotted and I was able to pull it right out. I am heartbroken as they were years old and have survived snow in the past. It seems this winer was too much for them. I understand from several nurseries in the lower mainland that many people have reported their palms dying this year. In fact, there is a 30 foot tall windmill down the street from me, which is now brown and dying too! Imagine! This palm has been at that house for 25-30 years with no problem! How is everyone else? Any inspiring, optimistic stories out there? I am looking for hope...........Cheers.
