Sago Palm Trees

Sago Palm

Anonymous added on February 24, 2014 | Answered

We have a very nice sago palm in our front yard and have never had a problem. I believe last spring it started to bloom (new leaves) and just stopped and has done nothing. I do not know if I should cut the old bloom or leave it alone. It formed seeds and all, and started forming new leaves, but nothing since. Any help you have would be great. I would hate to lose it, since it is about four ft.
