I've just purchased a Phoenix Roebelenii which is around 1m tall and was
wondering what is the best method for feeding them. Should I plant it
directly into the ground or move it to a larger pot?
I'm in the UK, so there is a risk of frost, how can they be protected
against frost in the winter as it's too big to bring indoors?
If temps don't get too cold for long periods then the ground is where to
put it. At least use as large a pot as can be handled if real cold
weather happens. http://www.floridata.com/ref/P/phoe_roe.cfm has good
information on this palm. P. roebelenii survive short duration "hard
freezes" here in SoFla.
Feeding, a "palm special" usually a 3-1-3 formulation with minor
elements is the way to go.
BTW the fruits, though small, are real dates and edible.
HTH -_- how
