Never had a problem with my palms, but they are all native to Florida and this area. Be careful. Landscapers will sell you anything and then they die with the first frost.

Same here. We have 4 Sylvesters, a Pindo and a Mule Palm. All very lovely, and the maintenance is minimal.

They look great as long as you do not allow the palm trimmers to perform a "hurricane" cut. Palms will be sickly and look terrible after they get through with the trim. If you are not sure what a "hurricane" cut is check out youtube……..

We love our palms and it is very inexpensive to have them trimmed. Totally worth it to us.

Go to the government annex on Morse and 466. The Master Gardeners are in the building with the Health Dept on Mondays from 9 am to 3 pm. If the Library on Powell Rd is closer to you, Master Gardeners are there on Fridays in room 102 from 9 am to
3 pm. It's your tax dollars at work.
