Palm trees bring an exotic look and feel to your tropical garden and when the wind is slightly blowing the sound of palm trees swaying in the breeze can be very relaxing.
One of the most important things that I have learned over the past 20 years of tropical gardening is that a palm trees hole in which you are putting it into should be twice the size for the ball root, this allows the roots to reach out and grabahold to get established.
You will also need to break appart the roots which usually get all tangle up in its orgiginal container.
Keep the top soil level the same as it was either previously planed in the ground or a pot.
Always use a planting and transplanting solution such as Quick Start by Miracle-Gro, this really gives the roots a great energy boost to stimulate the roots to grow and not go into shock.
Remember it is very important to keep the soil moist until the tree becomes re-rooted and established, strong and healthy.
Once it is happy and healthy in its new home, short periods of drying out between watering will be fine this helps the roots feel hungry and it will want to root tighter to hang on to moisture.
Also water up top on its fronds and on the trunk of the palm trees, they love to be watered this way and its actually healthier for them!
