Q.Which Palm Fertilizer Is Better?

Zone 63101 | Frank McGuire added on May 6, 2021 | Answered

Hi all. I noticed that in the last week my palm leaves become unbright as usual. My friend advised to use palm fertilizer. Which one to choose? I’ve found this article – https://www.backyardstyle.com/best-fertliizer-for-palm-trees and a lot of people talking about Palmgain as the best choice. What do you think about it?

It is really hard to find any fertilizer that will stand out, since they are all made with the same quality materials (Likely sourced from the exact same place). The most important thing will be that it is blended for palms.

There are better classes of nutrients known as "Pharmaceutical Grade" nutrients. These are produced in lab, but the quality is superior to shelf nutrients in every way. They are quite expensive, and are usually broken down into individual parts. This makes them very difficult to work with and measure, but for the advanced gardener, is a must.

In the case of ease of use- Use whatever you can find that is labeled for palms. It will be as good as the next product, no matter which you choose.

Here is an article that will offer more information on the nutritional needs of palm trees:
