Answer: It's true - the broadleaf weed killers in weed and feed products (2,4-D) can translocate to the roots of your palms and cause problems so I'd avoid using it on the grassy areas near the palm trees - just to avoid future problems. You can certainly feed your lawn in those areas, just don't use the weed and feed product. Instead, apply a high nitrogen, slow release ferilizer with a 3-1-2 ratio of NPK. This way your turf and your palms will get the nitrogen they need. You can even use a ferilizer with iron to help both the palms and the lawn stay green. Good luck with your landscape!
