The warmest USDA Hardiness zones – 10a and 10b – are in South Florida with its tropical monsoon climate, humid summers and mild winters. Cold-hardiness in Boca Raton may not be a big concern, other factors, like humidity, soil, rainfall, drainage, wind and heat, will affect the health of your palms.
Caring for Your Palm Trees
Water newly planted palm trees daily for the first week, every other day during Week Two, and then about three times per week. Palm trees like to be moist down to their roots. Not enough water and the tips of the leaves will turn brown; too much water and the leaves will turn brown or yellow and fall off the tree.
We recommend that you give each tree its own dedicated source of water; for example, 2 to 3 gallon per minute bubblers placed on both side of the root ball. Larger trees may require several bubblers.
And avoid watering your palms at the hottest part of the day or they may experience leaf burn. Instead, water in the early morning or late evening. Well-drained soil and proper watering is crucial for maintaining healthy, beautiful palms.
Your palm trees need nutrients for healthy growth, but avoid fertilizing newly planted palms during the first few months. You can, however, avoid transplant shock and give your trees a great start by adding a high-quality root stimulator containing endomycorrhizal fungi, amino acids, humic acid and growth hormones, when installing your new trees.
When you begin to fertilize mature trees, avoid adding fertilizer too close to the root ball or trunk. Use a fertilizer that is formulated for palms, and fertilize them only during the growing season of March through October.
Palm trees continue to absorb nutrients from yellowed, dying fronds, and these nutrients stimulate healthy growth. Overzealous pruning will damage or destroy your trees. Never remove anything but brown fronds and flower stalks.
Aside from attracting diseases and pests, excess pruning can create a hazard during high winds and hurricanes, when new fronds fall or the entire top crown snaps off during the storm. If your palms look like upside-down feather dusters, they have been over-pruned.
Palms are picky. Tropical palms enjoy warm, humid weather, while cold-hardy palms can tolerate dry winds in the summer and cold temperatures in the winter. It’s important to know which palms grow best in your climate.
