Question: 675-112
My Sago Palm has brown edges. I have been fertilizing it regularly when I water. It doesn't seem to pick up. What can I do? Lester, Morristown, TN

Mort's Answer:
Palms require little fertilizer especially in the winter. Stop fertilizing for a year. Repot the palm into a two inch larger clay pot. You will have fertilizer burn for a while. Do not cut off outer leaves for at least 6 months. The brown will only reappear on the outer edges again.
