my canary island palms that i put in the garden last year are looking a bit sickly, could this just be the frost and snow we had, or should i consider lifting them and putting them in pots?

Maybe PM the palm expert Barremic. I'm not to up on those. Is that a south facing wall, if not, perhaps it needs a but more sun on it, but I really don't know, just guessing really.

Funny you should think that Liparis. It was my first reaction too on seeing the wall.

hi

thanks, the wall is south facing, it was late evening when i took the picture, sun had gone behind the house.

It gets sund for most of the day, the soil is a bit heavy, it used to be just lawn, but i did put a bit of gravel below them when i was planting them.

It might just be the extra snow and frost this past winter, but I'm afraid I couldn't advise any further, if the Palm Man's not around, i would wait and see how it goes as summer progresses.
