I was looking at one of my queen palms today and it looks like the newest leaves are coming out in a slightly smaller and more chlorotic form. My Queens have never had a nutrient deficiency or frizzletop since they were planted in 1994 (very lucky for a South Floridian). The leaves do not seem to show signs of a frizzletop like Mn deficiency... any thoughts? If it is a nutrient deficiency, is there a way to increase soil pH or permanently resolve an issue like that without using chemical fertilizers or making the palms dependent on external help to grow properly?

Help- I have an 11 year old 25 ft Windmill palm in backyard at waters (Lake) edge. The lower prongs (leaves) are turning yellow but top and new growth is green. In South Carolina we had a colder Winter than usual- so there may be some cold winter damage. I have never fertilized the palm except for today- I used Miracle Grow Palm Fertilizer which is balanced in Nitrogen, Potassium and Magnesium. I suspect that there is a nutrient deficiency-either Potassium, Magnesium or both. Should I use any thing else? Perhaps a liquid. Also, should I cut off the yellow prongs. Miracle does not have Boron in it . Thanks
Should I be concerned with this area of my windmill or is this considered normal?
What is the difference between trachycarpus fortunei x wagnerianus and trachycarpus wagnerianus x fortunei?
Hi my name is Kevin and I am the owner of Island Wide Palm Trees, we are located on Long Island in New York. We sell palm trees as far south as Virginia and as far north as Massachusetts.
Here is pictures of one of my customer's Windmill Palms that have survived the past 4 winters. This spring will be 5 winters. You can not ask for better then this.
The best way to keep the trees alive is to have a good wrapping system. We have an amazing wrapping system that you can see on our website.
and here is a link to our Facebook video we posted last year about these trees. (wrapping and planting is extra right now)
If you have any questions about how to keep these windmills alive feel free to contact me. I will be more than happy to try and help you.
