Once planted, a palm tree is easily maintained with just a little effort and some tender loving care.

The most important factor in a palm tree's health is soil. Compacted, nutrient-deficient soils found in most urban environments do not contain the components necessary for a palm to truly thrive.

Feeding your palm should be a regular event. There are palm-specific fertilizers available that release their nutrients very slowly to provide consistent, targeted feeding. Apply at rates as recommended on the palm tree fertilizer and the leaves of your palms should turn deep green.

Best wishes with your palm trees!
