Moon Valley Palm Supplement Instructions
Necessary Nutrients for Palms
Palm trees are attractive accents or focal points in almost any style of landscape. Keeping your palms healthy and full requires paying attention to the special needs of these interesting trees. Most palms grow steadily from March through mid-November. This long growing season requires a lot of energy supplied by sunshine and fertilizer. High alkaline soils found throughout the southwest prevent the complete breakdown of many nutrients that are vital to maximizing palms' growth and vigor.
Moon Valley Palm Supplement has long been recognized as the most complete supplement designed especially for palms. Sulfur lowers the high ph from excess salts and calcium to soften the soil and improve water drainage helping palms easily absorb the extra nitrogen and potash, their most important macro-nutrients.
When Queen Palms suffer from yellow, stunted fronds they are usually deficient in manganese and other essential micronutrients. Moon Valley Palm Supplement incorporates manganese, magnesium, and iron to help prevent and cure this disfiguring affliction. Moon Valley Palm Supplement is only available at Moon Valley Nursery Locations.
Easy to use!
Apply Moon Valley Palm Supplement evenly over the rooting zone of palm trees and water thoroughly. Application rates vary per size and age of palm trees.
Directions for Use:
1. For optimum results, 8-0-8 Palm Fertilizer is to be used in conjunction with regular applications of Moon Dust. Moon Valley Palm Supplement should be used 3 to 4 times per year.
2. Measure the diameter (distance across, not around) of the trunk of the tree at a point approximately 2 feet from the ground.
|TRUNK DIAMETER||3"||6"||9"||12"||15"||18"+ up|
|CUPS OF PALM SUPPLEMENT||2||3||6||8||10||12|
4. Sprinkle 8-0-8 Palm Fertilizer in a circle surrounding the trunk but avoid applying too close to the trunk. It is best to determine the size of the root ball, usually 3 to 5 times the trunk diameter, and apply in a circular band around the root ball perimeter.
5. Water all trees immediately after fertilizing. Using a hose to saturate the entire fertilized area is recommended to improve fertilizer efficiency. Water each palm 3 to 5 times per week, depending on the season.
