    Try a 13-3-13 with a 3-2-2 minors package. If the new fronds are weak or have Frizzle top, then more Mn. If the older fronds are weak or dieing off early add add Mg. Remember Palms will take 6 month to show a response to fertilizer. They will also take 6 month to show a decline from the lack of fertilizer. The key to palms or any plant is a good steady continuous Fertilizer program.

    I don't.

    Weeds should be taken care of long before the heat of summer. However Dollar weed is one weed that must be treated on a regular basis because of our heavy rainy season. Try Quicksilver.
