How to Plant Florida Palm Trees
Pick a good site for your Florida Palm Tree. Be sure to follow the recommendations for your chosen tree. Dig a hole twice as wide as the root ball of your Palm tree. Put your tree in the hole and check each side to ensure your tree is straight. The root ball of your tree should be slightly higher than the existing soil line. Fill the hole with water and allow it to absorb before backfilling the soil. After planting, add 1 to 2 inches of mulch around the base of Florida Palm Trees. Extend the mound a few inches beyond the tree canopy. Using mulch in Florida and other tropical and subtropical regions is important. It helps the ground retain water longer, protects the roots, and reduces weed competition. Water again until your plant is thoroughly moist. Deeply water every day for the first week and about twice per week for the next one to three months while your tree’s roots are establishing.
