Re: when to plant ...

my thanks to s-l and gerrynag for your responses/info ... in retrospect, I realised my question was a pretty dumb one ... the obvious thing for me to do was to go to my local vivero and see what they were selling ... hence I have planted some tomatoes and peppers to date ...

water system damage to palm trees?

Recently I have had a watering system (rotating sprinkler sort) installed in part of the garden ... I have noticed that the sprinkler near a mature Washingtonia palm tree is soaking the lower trunk of said tree ... ?is that soaking of trunk likely to cause damage to said palm tree?
