It's normal for the oldest fronds of a sago palm to yellow as they age. You can prune them off the plant when they become unattractive. If the newer fronds are yellowing it can indicate overwatering, frost damage, sunburn, or a need for nutrients. If you're sure Jack Frost hasn't visited your garden, and that you are watering only when the top of the soil begins to dry out, then your palm probably needs to be fed. If so, use a palm fertilizer, in amounts as recommended on the package. Good luck with your sago.
