A couple of palm questions please.........
Location, central Alabama. Please note photos of Windmill Palm. From a distance it looks fairly normal other than the fact we lost several fronds to our cold winter. Next photo shows the base of the tree, note the hair is gone and the base remaining looks to be much smaller in diameter than the remainder of the tree. Should we cover this bare area with mulch? Do we have a problem?
Secondly, Pindo Palm cut back from winter damage. This tree keeps trying to bloom. I have been cutting bloom pods in hopes that this would provide more energy for the new fronds to emerge. Am I correct in doing this?
PS Forget the multiple photos, looks as though I could load only one so I chose the base of the Windmill.
Many Thanks for your help!
