Q.Sago Palms (Outdoor)

Anonymous added on July 15, 2011 | Answered

How do I prevent my sago palms from growing so very tall? I really do not want them above 5 feet. I have one that is 8-9′ tall. Can I cut off the top of this one?

Your Sago palms, like all healthy plants, will keep on growing. If you cut the top off, your palm, it will probably die because its specialized growth habit will be destroyed.
