The Q&A Archives: Queen Palms

Question: How often should I fertilize to get healthy looking palms? Whatkind of fertilizer should I use?

Answer: Palms need little maintenance and most thrive with adequate water and an organic mulch placed over the soil once a year. Use aged-compost or aged-manure and broadcast about a one-inch layer over the soil. As you water the nutrients will be leached from the organic mulch and travel down into the root zone of your palm.
