How close can I plant these 2 palms?
I would like to know how close I can plant a Sago Palm next to a Queen Palm? I need to transplant a good sized Sago (10" across the trunk, 3 1/2 ft tall) but to place it next to my Queen Palm will be squeezing into a bordered garden. (I might have to abandon this idea) The Queen Palm is small (4" across the trunk, 4ft tall). I'm aware of the mature thickness of each trunk BUT as they mature, how close is too close? Sagos are more sensitive to fertilizer, in contrast Queens need a good feeding. So when I fertilize, I don't want to upset my Sago and if it's too close I'll have a problem. Plus planting it too close may look bad??? Anyone have any experience with this?
FYI my goal is for the Sago to be an understory palm. So basically what do you think is the closest I can place a Sago next to a Queen? How much space do I need in between each palm if they are both mature palms? Thanks for your help.
