I`ve just got hold of a Windmill Palm and was wondering what feed to
I have been reading many articles regarding feed from using a high
nitrogen feed to manure.
Any advice would be grateful, thanks.
Wait until you are sure the palm is indeed established. If you feed it
too soon, you might burn bruised roots.
I believe I have seen special palm fertilizer in some stores. I have a
potted palm that I feed with the same house-brand 27-0-6 lawn food that
I use on most of my garden. Since it is in a pot with constrained
roots, I feed it very, very lightly 2-3 times a year. In the ground,
you can feed your palm more generously once a year (late spring) if you
spread the fertilizer in a solid circle that extends 2-3 feet from the
base of the trunk.
