I purchased a sago palm. I am in a colder zone than the minimum required. Will the plant die in winter? If so, is there anything I can do to prevent it from dying?

Sago palm or Cycas revoluta is only considered winter hardy into zone 9 -- think Florida for climate. According to your zip code you are gardening in zone 6, a very substantial difference. Unfortunately, it is really not possible to protect this plant sufficiently to overwinter it outdoors. I'm sorry I can't be more encouraging.
