Q.Can I Dig Out Compacted Roots Of A Date Palm?

Zone 92860 | Anonymous added on May 13, 2021 | Answered

I have a large date Palm in the middle of my patio. We love it but the soil around it has become impacted with roots. I’d like to know what I can do with it. Can I dig out a few inches, add good loose soil and plant a groundcover? Any other suggestions?

No, don't do any digging. The best thing you could do for this palm is just add a layer of mulch.
