Default How to Transplant A Sago Palm Tree?

I just bought another palm tree from here, and i saw the sago palm tree is quiet cold hardy, since i live in Jersey i figured this would be great for my landscape. So i was wondering before i begin to transplant what should i do?

Default Tranplanting your Sago Palm Tree.

The best thing to do, is to wait till spring. The palm tree is cold hardy but every palm tree need to develop its roots when transplanting. If you wait a couple of months you will ensure its growth and its health. I love sago palm trees so that is why im telling you. I would hate for it not to survive this winter.
Good Luck

Default I hope she waited till spring time.

Sago palms are cold hardy but they need to be acclimated first in my opinion.

Try Pravado spray from a DIY store like Homebase or B&Q if you have these stores.

Provado Ultimate Bug Killer Ready to Use - Bayer Garden

Good luck!

If digging for transplant, time the move for the late winter or early spring during the plant's rest period. Water the sago palm 24 hours before digging to hydrate and soften the surrounding soil. Put on a pair of gloves to protect your hands and Measure 6 to 12 inches from the sago palm's trunk using a measuring tape
