Hi:

In recent months, I have a Palm tree (Canary Date Palm) in the front yard for about
20 years. In recent months it seems to lose its nuts gradually. Now only about 85% of the nuts is left in the crown area. Should I be concern and if so, what steps should I take to stop this.

Thanks!

AC

Default Planning a tropical yard around the pool in Northern CA

We are finishing our pool and starting to plan our yard design. We love the Hawaiian style landscape and would love to replace it as much as possible. I would love to plant a couple travelers plans to provide some privacy along our back fence. Also I would like to surround the pool with Christmas palms as well. Does anyone have experience with these trees in northern ca? Any advice about planting these would be appreciated.

Thanks
Erik

It has been given the name "traveller's palm" because the sheaths of the stems hold rainwater. However, the water inside the plant is murky, black and smelly and should not be consumed without purification. This plant also requires a sunny spot (not full sun until it is larger) & It responds well to fertiliser, especially if it is high in nitrogen during the growing season. The plant grows to an average height of 7 m (23 ft) and requires moderate water..Also, Growing Christmas palm trees in the home landscape is a perfect way to get that tropical feel without the hassle of the bigger specimens in the family. This tree prefers well-drained, slightly sandy soil in full sun, although it can tolerate light shade. The plants require supplemental water as they establish, but once mature, these trees can withstand short periods of drought. They are also quite tolerant of saline soils.Fertilize every 4 months with a time release palm food. Because the plants are self-cleaning, you rarely have to do any pruning. A few fungal diseases are also of concern; but for the most part, Christmas palm tree care is a piece of cake, which is why the plant is so popular in warm climates. Glad Too Help

The palm also has some yellowing spots are these from the sun or lack thereof?
The Yellowing on the Areca is the same problem I was experiencing. I asked a local landscaper what his diagnoses would be is to fertilize them every 3 months with a slow release formula.
There was no sense in me getting a liquid if they have the slow release pebble ones.
I don't have to worry about it for a few months at a time. I have them lining my yard for a privacy fence and they are green and bushier than ever. The sunspots will go away on their own once they get used to the location they are placed in if they are in direct sun they will eventually green out but I believe the trick is the fertilizer and water.

Mother Nature will take care of the rest. Let me know how they do in a couple of months. In the mean time, I hope this message helps. Take Care - C.W

Both of those trees dont like temperatures lower than 45 degrees. So if your planning on having them survive you would need to either keep em in a pot and move em in during the winter when temps are lower than 45-50degrees. Why don't you try the bismarck palm they are usually hardy to about 28 degrees so is the fishtail chinese fan even pygmy date palms will tolerate about 25 degrees without getting any cold damage. you want to plan out your landscape right the first time. Sometimes its not what we want its what will survive in our climate. So to answer your original question the travelers and christmas palms will do well if you keep them at a minimum temperature of 45-50 degrees and or plant them in planters to relocate when its cold. Take care of our trees and help minimize the effects of global warming the more trees people the more clean oxygen were giving back to this beautiful earth God Bless us All.

Default New To Palm Trees! San Diego

My wife and I just purchased a home in San Diego and have 2 beautiful palm trees that we want to keep healthy. We aren't sure what type they are and how to properly care for them. Can anyone identify this pictured palm? What are the flowers below the fronds? Can they be removed as they make a large mess when they fall on the patio and attract many bees. Does the palm have to be watered? If so, how often and how?

Thanks for any help that may be provided!

Question Salt breeze and palm trees?

I have a small place off the bluffs and occasionally we will have salt spray, which palm trees should we use for outside deck? Its going to be receiving sun mostly all day and salt spray. I went to a local plant nursery place but they dont have any good selection, just your common trees and plants, and we are looking for something more tropical looking

Exclamation Ho! Ho! Ho! Santas Got a Question.

Santa Has a big surpirse for Mrs Clause This Year.. Its an early gift called the Lipstick Palm. Last year while vacationing in Hawaii Mrs Clause was in love with the red stalks. She even mentioned how nice The Lipstick palm will look in our new vacation home in the beautiful hills of California. I would very much like to keep this tree alive at least until Christmas. As I will be very busy around the holidays.
Is there a special Pot or something that will ensure this exotic beauty makes it to Mrs. Clause. Seriously, What does Santa Know about Lipstick Palms??
Please help!! I have a special little elf standing by who is dedicated watering fertilizing and misting it if necessary.

Exclamation Looking for some palms?

Moved down from Seattle and looking to paradise to my new pad, any suggestions? I was looking into the Jade Empress palm and/or the Flamethrower palm along with some other local plants I picked up from the farmer's market. You would think the downtown's farmers market would also have palms but on saturday, I found nill... So if anyone knows a good place in Palo for some exotic palms and plants, don't be shy, please reply

Lightbulb California Palm

I live in Nevada now I notice the weather is very dry here. I have the Ruffled Palm. My question is it a good Idea to put my Ruffled Fan in a Planter outside in the sun if I water it 3 times a day? I just moved from SM California. Is this too dry of a climate? It was outside on my patio in Santa Monica for 2 years!! I am emotionally attached. Does anyone know have experience with this palm and climate?
