PALM TREE CARE

Bottle Palms are easy to grow trees that require little care. They add a wonderful accent to any outdoor space, garden or patio. In cooler zones a containerized palm can be relocated indoors for the winter months. In the northern end of their grow zone Bottle Palms require indoor protection or heavy mulching during the winter months.
When you receive your new palm, there is no need to worry about planting right away. Your new plant can be stored for a while by simply placing it in a bucket with about a half inch of water in the bottom and moving it to a shady location. You can then add some mulch to the bucket to keep your plant standing upright. The mulch will also supply nutrients while in storage. This will give you plenty of time to select the ideal location for your new palm.

CONTAINER SIZE

All palm varieties grow very well in containers, indoors or on the patio. Allow enough room for growth generally a 10″ to a 20″ diameter, 10″ deep container will suffice to get started. Remember the looser the roots, the taller and healthier your palm will be. When the plant becomes root bound its growth will slow, at that point it is time for a larger pot.

SOIL

Bottle Palms enjoy well drained but moist, rich organic mix. Remember try to stay away from wet, mucky or arid soils.

FERTILIZER

To help establish your new Bottle Palm, fertilize sparingly at least 6inches away from the base, tri-annually with a slow time released product. Unfertilized they will tend to grow at a slower pace. Note:The heavy salts in cheaper fertilizers willdamage the roots and possiblykill the tree. Its best to use a brand you know and trust.

GROW ZONE & LIGHT

Best outdoors if grown in zone 10a-11, find your zone here. This Palm requires 80-100% sunlight. Depending on your location full sun is often best.In the northern end of their grow zone Bottle Palmsshould be brought indoors or protected during the winter months. The patio zone is 4b-11 which means the potted plant will flourish over the summer months in colderzones but must be brought inside beforewinter.

BEFORE YOU PLANT OUTDOORS

At the nursery these palmsare grown under 20-40% shade cloth. If you plant this palmin a brightly lit areayou may experience leaf burn. It is best to acclimate this plant to its environment by keeping it outside and slowly moving it into a sunny area over a week or two to avoid stress before planting.

WHAT IS THE SHIPPING SIZE

Orders placed from the western regions in the US can have an extended delivery time up to 9 days, we strongly recommend selecting 2 day UPS or placing your order in early spring or late fall to avoid hot summer temps. In these regions you are accepting full responsibility for the shipment and understand the risks involved due to distance and temperatures.

**To better serve you, during certain times of the year, when heat and travel time may become an issue, we offer UPS 2 Day which may be considerably more expensive however safer for your shipment. Due to extended travel time and weather conditions we remove the UPS Ground options to some locations to prevent loss and heat damage.

**About delivery time: During checkout you will notice the shipping time states "once shipped" in days but our "delivery time" is stated in weeks. That is because, our nursery typically receives over 1-2 hundred orders a week with orders consisting of 1 to 20+ plants each, which adds up to around 1,000 plants per week to prepare and ship, when we are only able to properly ship around 125 or so orders per week. We are a nursery of two people doing all the maintenance, propagation, shipping and customer service, working eight days per week. We do not take any short cuts while packaging and each plant is handled and treated with the utmost care. When the orders in our shipping queue reach 300, we turn off the site checkout process until the shipping queue is down to a manageable 200 or less orders.
Example:
1. You order on the first of the month with 2 day shipping.
2. Shipping queue orders are at 2-4 weeks.
3. At week 2-4 your order is ready to ship.
