Growing Palm Trees Outdoors

When we decide plant our palm trees outsideEither in our garden or on the outskirts of our house it is important that we take into account the irrigation and fertilization of these plants, since by ensuring that they have a good amount of water and nutrients we will be ensuring their development and correct growth.

In this way, today, we will start talking about the watering our palm trees that are planted outside.

The watering of this type of plants must be frequent from the moment we sow it until it reaches approximately 2 years of age. After having completed a couple of years, the palm tree is already established on the ground and is capable of sustaining itself with few irrigations or with the water that falls on it from the rain.

However, as we have mentioned before, if we want the palm tree to grow fast, it is important that we water and fertilize it frequently.

It is important that we bear in mind that many palm trees are very resistant to drought, but other species are more demanding, such as those that live along the banks of rivers or in very swampy and humid areas. For example, the palm hearts that are native to the western Mediterranean belong to those palm trees that do not need much water to survive.

In the same way, it is important that you take into account that a palm tree can consume much more water if it meets the following characteristics: It is in full sun, in a place where there is no shade throughout the day. If very dry winds hit it instead of being protected against them and if it is planted in a sandy soil, drier, so we must water it much more frequently and in greater quantity.

      Hello Eliud.

      They may have been sunburned. This happens when they are grown in the shade and one day they are put in the sun directly, without having accustomed them before.

      They may also have received a lot of water.
