When to start fertilizing?

drich30099April 12, 2011

Hi, it will be a month probably before I move the palms outside for the summer, but when do I start fertilizing? I brought back a 5lb. bag of palm fert. from Fla. and realize it won't be enough, especially since my 2 queen palms are 9" in diameter! So where to buy more? I've never seen it at Lowe's or HD.

Thank you!

Might have to go on line to find actual palm fertilizer.

I think in zone 5 May would be the right month to fertilize
and with this crazy spring it makes even more sense.

We have already had 4-5 days in the 80s here but looks
cool and chill over the weekend.

Yes! we were 84 degrees or so on Sunday, it was great!
Thanks, i'll check online, or maybe Lowe's will order for me since I got it at a Lowe's in Fla.
