New Queen Palms-Don't know what we're doing!
Hi folks, hope you can help. About three weeks ago, we bought some small Queen Palms at Lowe's, they are about 5-6 ft tall. We notice that some of the older growths are getting kind of yellowish on the tips, so we added some palm fertilizer maybe 2 weeks ago.
We live in Sacramento, and it has been cooler than usual for this time of year, if that makes a difference I don't know. We are checking the soil at 6 inches, and it still shows "moist", even after not watering for a week. We do, however, have very clay soil, so it really holds the moisture in.
What I need to know is, how long before I know if the fertilizer worked, and are these trees in bad shape, or am I just a paranoid newbie? :)
