EVENT: Palm Care Made Simple

Palms are as much a part of Florida as sunshine, but, oddly, a mystery to many. Join us Jan. 21 for a free, one-hour class where we’ll discuss a range of issues related to our wonderful palm trees.

We’ll go over basic care and maintenance, including explaining how “hurricane pruning” actually harms trees. You’ll walk away with simple steps to get healthier palms to keep you happy all year long. Register early through to save your seat and receive notice of any changes.

For questions or further information, please call 941-861-5000 or email If you require special accommodations to attend one of our events, please contact us in advance at 941-861-5000 or

NOTE: Classes and events may be canceled at any time due to low registration or other circumstances, with full refunds issued for paid events. Similar classes or events often are offered on future dates.

  1. I need help with a 5 yr. old Foxtail Palm and always well cared for with fertilizer and watering . All of a sudden it is now yellowing , a little droopy but still making new fronds. I bought a special Palm fertilizer at Home Depot with extra nutrients and it has not look any better , maybe worse. What is causing this to happen , and have been a Florida Palm grower for many years in my yard .
