sago palm problems
Pre-Katrina we lived in Long Beach, MS and had 3 of the most beautiful, carefree sago palms one could imagine. Only worry we had was that they might get too big (of course, Katrina took care of that AND the house!)
Last year we moved to a nearby town and built a new home, new landscaping, etc. We only have one sago palm, and it looks awful. We have sprayed several times with oil, but it just looks like it is getting worse and wonder if it is too late to save it? Fronds are mostly yellowed, scale is underneath.
If we can save it, what is the best way to go about it? I've read about using manganese sulfate, Scott's Bonus-S lawn fertilizer, Ultrafine spray oil, Cygon, Malathion. What would you recommend, and how often should the sago be treated? Someone once mentioned Epsom Salts, but not sure how or why one would use them.
HELP! Your advice is truly appreciated. If we have to, we'll just dig it up, but I really would hate to.
