Have very large Sego palm in a pot. Was in shady corner of patio but it outgrew that corner. Moved it into a sunnier spot but the fronds are now turning yellow. Put some iron granules into soil. Anything else I can do or do I need to move it back into shade?

Sago palms can take full sunshine but they need to make a gradual move from a shady spot into the sun or the leaves will burn. I'd move it back into a shadier spot until this winter when the sun's rays are not so intense. Move it into a sunnier spot in January and it should be able to tolerate more and more sun as the season progresses. By the time next summer rolls around it should be acclimated and the foliage won't burn even in the summer sun.
