Care Tips for a Bangalow Palm

 Crownreduced

WATERING

For best results, Bangalow palms need regular deep watering in dry weather, especially during the warmer months.  Keep moist and not saturated i.e. provide good drainage.

 


FERTILIZERS

Fertilize with Blood & Bone, Paton Palm Food or pelleted Poultry Manure during the active growth period. 


Don’t over-fertilize
. Use smaller amounts more frequently.

 

Excellent growing is achieved using a controlled release fertiliser (Paton, Osmocote or similar) which is only active from 21°c upwards.  The hotter the ambient temperature, the more fertiliser it releases.

 

“Seasol” dilated with water, as instructed on bottle, is a fabulous additive to encourage new root growth.


 

TRIMMING OR PRUNING

Bangalow palms generally need no pruning, as old dead fronds normally fall off cleanly when they are ready.
