Hard to advise as no idea which part of the UK your daughter lives nor what you mean by palms exactly.

Little more info. and sure we can all help.

Wrap up your power washer too - -

- - as ours was damaged beyond beyond repair last winter as it sat in the garage. The new one is now cosily ensconced in a couple of blankets. The BBC gardening website has some useful info on protecting plants and it mentions 'layers' of fleece.

fleece part 2

you want to wrap at least twice over, especially the further north up the country - if your very prone to heavy hard frosts and deep snow.

snow actually insulates and protects plants - it's the frost that gets them (so i'm told)

i used attic insulation and burlap sacking on my jap maple and am hoping for the best.

we now have about 6 inches of snow too so hoping the insulation theory is correct and it's staying warm.

it's been mild here so far. only hit -20 once i think
