A - It depends on where the palm is and the type of Palm fertilizer you are using, for instance
For most outdoor Palm trees and larger palm bushes using the Lutz palm fertilizer spikesis the best way and we feel the very best type of fertilizer to use. Because it is slowly released you will only need to fertilize twice a year. Using this method we recommend in February & August. (For more information on this brand of palm food click on the photo below).
For indoor palms or palms and indoor exotic plants which can get pests from other indoor plants we recommend ferti-lome palm foodwith systemic this will prevent or stop pests from harming your palms and plants plus feet your palms. We recommend feeding every two months using this product.
To save you money and get a very good Palm food from the nations leader in fertilizer manufacturing we have a 20 pound bulk bag of Scotts palm foodavaliable. This is a very popular food for palm growers. We recommend feeding every three to four months when using this product depending on your area.
Organic, All Natural Whitney Farms palm food is also avaliable from Hooked On Palms in a four pound box. We recommend feeding your palms every two months using this product. (For more information on this brand of palm food click on the photo below).

Q - My Palms get quit a bit of yellowing on the leaf blade during the Winter months. Can I help prevent this?
A - This is a natural occurrence. It is more sever in colder parts of the country and in places like the Pacific NW where they get a lot of rain in the winter months. The rain leaches the nutrients out of the soil and causes the palms to start to yellow. This also weakens the plant or palm and is why the mid Summer feeding is important in these areas of the country. My recommendation is to fertilizer using a good fertilizer especially formulated for Palms like the ones you can get at a Hooked On Palms location near you. (see the question above as to when and how often to feed your palms & bananas) You can purchase or order Palm food from one of our Hooked On Palms locations or at this web site link
