Growing Sabal Minor in Central New Jersey - Update May 2010

By a New Jersey Palm Enthusiast

Nearly 15 years ago I sent you a piece that you posted on your web site about growing Sabal Minor in NJ. The experiment lasted until sometime last fall when someone dug the plant out. The really sad thing is that judging by the hole I found the thief didn't get enough of the root system for the plant to survive. Until it was stolen the palm did well although it never got to the point of flowering and setting seed. I have no doubt that it would have given another year or two. This is how it looked not long before it was stolen approximately 19.5 years from seed and 18.5 years in the ground essentially untended.
