THere was a landscape company that dropped off the bags at your home.

Anyone know who they are?

Or where I can buy the right formula?

Go to home Depot and buy the palm spikes. They come in a 15 pack and they last 6 months. Made a big difference with my palm tree.

Have gotten Lesco from Fertilizer Direct for years. They will even deliver 1 bag and send you an invoice. Best fertilizer for palms.

Frog tree service will deliver it when he's in your area, I think he was $60.00 a bag.

Home Depot carries 2 Lesco Palm Fertilizer formulas .... No where near $55/bag, but of course you gotta pick it up!

The fact is your plants can't read. Far as Listco or any, most, of the others they make the same product under several names.

You can easily research, on line, what is in the product you are looking for n-p-k, percentage that is slow release, plus ????? and you can either buy the same product or create the same thing by mixing products together.

TEASING BUT, there is no chance your palm will ride in on a horse and declare I only smoke Listco.

The UF/IFAS Extension recommends Lesco (not Listco) as one of the "reliable brands" for palm fertilization. These people know what they're talking about. I've used Lesco for five years and have had great success in keeping my palms healthy and beautiful.

I believe most people on this site choose to go by recommendations made by professionals.

And, plants or turf that happen to be located near the palm tree love Lesco, too.

50% Used coffee and 50% the cheapest palm or citrus fertilizer I can find, beats any fertilizer alone.
If the 'expert' you are asking about feeding your palm isn't asking you what your soil pH is, they aren't the 'expert' you're looking for.
