Default Sure, the bamboo palm is resilient

Having the bamboo palm inside your office, you would have to water it at least 2 times a week, but let the water dry out between each watering. You will notice if you need to water the bamboo palm more. The tip of the leaves will start to yellow and turn brown, if this is happened already, no worries, just up the amount of water and take a scissor to any dead tipped leaves.

Default Buying and growing questions

Hello, I am new to the forum and also to purchasing palm trees online, I have made my selection and it looks like the windmill palm or the needle palm would be the best for my area, since they are considered snow palm trees. I have a couple of questions first about growing them up here, my neighbor has two in planters and he brings them in during the blizzards. How long can they grow in planters and what height do these palm trees grow to? How often do you fertilize them and can these be placed in a garden with no worries since they are able to survive the snow? I live right by Trinity United Methodist church in Chesapeake and we have strong winds that come from the river, will this affect the palm trees?

Default Wind Mill Palm in Maryland

Good selection. I live in Cape St. Claire and have had the Windmill Palm for about five years now. I put it in a concrete planter about four feet by four feet with adequate drainage at the bottom.

The plant has manged the winters well here. I fertilize twice a year with Palm fertilizer, give it an occasional beer (Corona), and make sure that when snow is coming, that I frame around it and wrap plastic or a tarp to keep the snow off of it.

Of course I have missed a few snow storms and I simply rattle the branches to get the snow off and it has done well. It is about 12 ft. high now and becoming more difficult to wrap. Considering removing it from planter and setting in natural soil... but I will need heavy equipment to get it and the root ball out.

Good luck!

Default Patience with your palm.

Windmill palms are great to withstand the cold weather. I just had mine planted last week and its doing fatastic. I made sure they planted it with plenty of fertilizer and the root stimulator. I hear that during spring and summer the palm will grow larger but the roots are still strengthening under the ground getting accustomed to the new space they are in. Im no palm tree expert but my palm is doing great..

Windmill Palms do well in confined areas and is hardy to 10-degrees F. or lower, so to wrap up your question, yes. They'd be able to withstand the weather in the UK. Happy too help

You do Not need to water Bamboo Palm Very often.
Matter of fact I only water mine when it looks dry maybe once a week if any.

I grew very nice Windmill's in Hunt Valley Maryland. Just make sure the soil is well draining add some pea gravel and sand mixture. Too much moisture will cause root rot and kill the tree.
