Culture: Queen Palms vary in trunk size, trunk
girth, size and shape of the fronds. As a rule, field growth
palms are more viriorus in growth and have thicker trunks. The
type of seed initially used is also very important. Planting
is always best done with a base of plaster sand and with the
base at grade height. Watering is best at three days a week
in hot weather, once a week during cooler weather. Queen Palms
like heavy nitrogen applications monthly during the growing
season, and trace element feedings either thru a time–release
product or a foliar application. Our palms are shipped with
the fronds tied and should only be untied after 30 to 45 days.
We have thousands of Queen Palms, available in all sizes.
