Palm trees can be a great addition to our landscaping! Even if we do not live anywhere tropical, having that beachy feel is always inviting. So here are some basic steps on how to successfully grow our own palm trees.
Pick the palm that will do best in your climate. You have to consider your climate before you pick the palm you plan on planting. If your area tends to have a mild, constant climate then you should be able to grow just about any type of palm. The good thing is, even if you are living in parts of the country that dips down into the twenties, you can still have a palm tree in your backyard. Even the shorter ones can do well in this weather.
The next thing you have to do is choose where to put your palm tree. The best place for your palm really depends on whatever variety you get. The amount of sun depends on this too. Your local garden center, or the tree’s tag should give you the information you need.
