I live in Pahrump, NV. I just bought two Canary Island Palms. I was told I could plant now. I read somewhere else it's too early. Your thoughts.

The standard rule of thumb about planting is that you can plant anytime the ground is not frozen. The truth is, your palms will be happier in the ground than in a container. The soil will provide the roots with some protection from the cold. I'd go ahead and plant them now, being sure to water them well after planting and frequently for the first month. If you get them in the ground now they will have a chance to settle in before hot summer weather arrives. I'd vote for planting them now. Good luck with your landscape!
