Palms – Winter Damage.
We have had lots of questions recently about winter damage to palms in
The best thing to do is wait and see if they recover in the spring.
However this is unlikely so if they show no signs of recovery by the end
of May I we recommend cutting them back so that you only leave about a
metre of stem above ground.
Then feed with a general feed such as growmore fertilizer. This
treatment should induce the dormant buds in the base of the stems to start growing.Once this happens you should start feeding with a liquid feed.This will result in a more bushy plant.
