|How much does a Queen Palm grow per year in the Louisiana area, and any special care needed. What about palm food, does Home Depot have any and if so what would be the best kind to get and how often to feed. Thank you very much. Gerard LeBlanc.

|Queen Palms are considered moderately fast growing palms, putting out 3-4 fronds per year. To keep them healthy, use a granular palm food such as ?Plant Magic palm food?. Granular foods should be applied every 3 months in 4 to 6 inch holes placed about 18 to 24 inches from the trunk of the palm. The irrigation emitters should be placed away from the trunk so that they are approximately over the fertilizer that was applied.
