Hi I recently bought some palm trees from homedepot and I paid 150.00 dollars for them they are 3 big queen palms in one big plastic pot now they are 3 palms together and I was wanting to know if it is possible to seperate them and plant them if seperated would they die because I know they grow real big and if I leave them together they might be to big or might not grow straight thankyou

Queen palms actually look quite nice when grouped in three's but if you want to separate them you can. Each will have its own root system. However, the roots may be intertwined so it might take a little work to get them apart. Don't just cut them apart, work the roots free instead. It will be easier if you lay the palms down on a big tarp and remove some of the soil with a spray of water from the hose. Spray, separate, spray, separate, then plant each of the palms in their own planting holes. Best wishes with your project!
