I have Queen palms about 15 feet tall. What should I be feeding them and how often? I live above Orlando FL.

You need to fertilize once a season in spring, summer and fall (skip winter) with a fertilizer that has an NPK of 8-2-12 as well as containing some magnesium. They do sell special palm fertilizer that can make things easier.
