Story of My Palm Tree:)/ How to Grow a Palm Tree?By Chandnis80
Many factors are involved in successfully growing a palm tree.
One main aspect is to finding the right sprecies to grow in your garden. Did you know that there are over two thousand and odd palms.......hmmmmm mind boggling huh... yea I never knew that before.The best way to find the perfect palm for your garden is to go to the nursery and talk to them as they will ask you question such as where u live and how hot or cold is it in wineter etc and they will narrow it down for you and then it will be much easier for you to choose your palm.
The next aspect is to decide the size of the plant. You can buy small plants or big mature palms.The small plants are inexpencive but talk a while to grow. The large ones are pretty expencive but will def give instant gratification.:)
The other aspect is to know when to plant the palms. If you are in an extremely hot area like Palm Springs or Las Vegas, avoiding planting during the extreme hot months might be warranted. However, there are very sturdy species that can essentially be planted any time of the year. It’s probably best to check with your palm expert at the nursery when you buy your plants.
The right soil is also important for the Palm to flourish.Find out if its clay or sand.The amendments one uses when preparing the soil for planting are different for clay or sandy soil.The best scenario is to have a sandy soil with a bit of slope or incline to the garden.Sandy Soil: For every three parts of your native soil, mix in one part of organic material (fir shavings, etc.) For Clay Soil: For every three parts of your native soil, mix in one part of organic material and one part of course sand.
Remove from the pot and dig a hole and plant it an inch or two deeper to create a “watering well”. Fill the bottom with soil blend and plant it and water it. I hope you enjoyed this post and if you have more info to share pls post them :)
