First fertilization should be done one month after palm is installed (Note: Do NOT fertilize in winter) Thereafter palms should be fertilized one week after last freeze(spring) then 6 months after (fall). Make sure the fertilizer you use is a palm food, a regular tree or grass fertilizer may cause growth problems. Spread the fertilizer at base of palm where the water is applied.
* It may take up to a year for some palms to start growing.
Some palm trees are not as cold hardy as the others. You can take a old sheet and cover the palm to keep the wind and frost off the fronds. If the fronds brown on your palm it does not mean the palm is dead, most likely it is wind burn. When we have finished with the last frost cut the dead/browned fronds off witch will help the palm push healthier new fronds.
