Help with my windmill palm

Zone Tooting | Guybottomley added on June 1, 2019 | Answered

I’m not really a gardener but I’ll try my best to explain! Half the leaves on my windmill palm are breaking in the middle and the whole leaf is turning yellow and dying. The lower down leaves are the worst but the new high leaves are now browning at the tips and some are breaking too. It flowered about 4 weeks ago with little yellow seed and around the same time we re sowed the lawn so have been doing a lot of watering. Could you advise what I need to do to save the tree? Thanks

Your watering habits, as of late, will be the culprit.

This has gone fungal. There will be a few things that you can try here, though. The first will be a LARGE HANDFUL of DOLOMITIC LIME and a TABLESPOON of WETTABLE SULFUR per plant can help the infection.

The next options will be fungicide sprays. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/info/using-fungicides-in-garden.htm
