•        It’s time to give your trees and shrubs their first
feeding of the year. As long as there isn’t significant cold
damage on your plants (and since we have had a mild
winter…) give them a full dose!

•        Lawn mowing time is fast approaching. Get your
mower in condition and ready to go by changing the oil
and replacing any parts such as filters and blades.

•        It’s been a long dry winter for our lawns. Now is the
time to put down a pre-emergent herbicide for weeds and
give the lawn it’s first feeding of the year.

•        Now is the time to get going on your spring
vegetable garden. Plant tomatoes, corn, peppers,
cucumbers and eggplant.

•        Spring flowers to plant include begonias, marigolds,
zinnias and salvia.

•        Did you get a poinsettia or maybe an amaryllis for
the holidays? If so, consider planting it in your garden
now. With proper care you will be rewarded with color
again and again for years to come.

The Phoenix roebelenii palm (a.k.a. pygmy date palm) is one of the
most versatile palms you can own. With its slow growth and a mature
height of 10’-12’ it is an ideal palm for inside a pool cage, as a focal
point out in the landscape, and even as an indoor potted plant.
specimens you may have observed are the results of growing multiple
seedlings in one single pot.
       This tree grows well in full sun to partial shade. If it is to be used
as an indoor potted plant it will need the highest light available in your
home to survive. It has moderate drought tolerance once established in
the landscape. Pruning is limited to removing the older fronds as they
turn brown and decline, therefore it is considered a fairly maintenance
free plant.
If you have a passion for tropical plants, this one is a must
have! The addition of one or more of these palms into a landscape can
turn it from ordinary to ‘tropicalicious’. (Ok, my spell checker says this
isn’t a word…but I’m going to use it anyway!) We here at Woodlands
carry a varied selection of this palm so one can fit in the landscape,
and the budget, of everyone.
The pygmy date palm

fronds which can be

6’-10’. But
beware…the base of
each of the fronds is
edged with long sharp
thorns. The trunk is
rough textured which

Even though
this palm is usually
seen in groupings of
three or more, don’t
be fooled into thinking
it is a clumping palm.
This is a single trunk
palm grown from seed.
