Default Re: Coconuts and cold tolerance

I think if anyone down in marginal areas wanted to try they should order the Malayan yellow dwarf (that Chinese variety can't be shipped here) variety from, plant in extremely well drained soil. Plant it next a south facing wall, black rock ground cover, and maybe next to a pool.

Also check out Sepp Holzer, the guy is growing stuff in Austria at at 1500 meters that people said he couldn't. His techniques may help with zone pushers. I myself will use as many as I can for my bananas. An inspiring individual.
