Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your European Fan Palm Tree


European Fan Palm Tree Planting Diretions

European Fan Palm Trees (‘Chamaerops Humilis’) are lush exotic plants with long, fan shaped leaves that mature to heights of 10-15 feet and widths of 8-12 feet. These slow growing trees are best known as being native to Europe and used often as an eye catching shrubs and make a wonderful addition to your landscape. Fan palms prefer full to partial sun in USDA growing zones 4-11 and are hardy down to 20℉ though it’s only recommended to plant them outdoors in zones 8-11. The ideal planting times for these trees is late spring or early summer.

Location: Place your European Fan Palms in a location that has well draining soil and receives full or partial sunlight. These plants need a minimum of 4-6 hours of direct sunlight daily. If you are planting your trees as a screen, place them at least 15-20 feet apart to allow room for growth.

Planting Instructions: For warm weather locations, palm trees can be planted pretty much any time of the year. For colder regions, it’s best to wait until the weather warms up a bit before planting. If there is going to be waiting period before you plant, keep the palm’s roots moist, but don’t soak them.

1) Dig a hole that is 2-3 times the width and just as deep as the root ball. Make sure to amend the soil you remove from the hole with some compost.
2) When planting, handle your palm tree carefully as you position it in the hole. Be especially careful of the tree’s roots and the bud (or heart) because this is where your new palm growth will come from.
3) Place the tree in the hole making sure the top of the roots are level with the surrounding soil. Tamp down as you backfill the hole to prevent air pockets from forming.
4) Water the planting site and then mulch to retain soil moisture as well as keep competing growths at bay.
5) Once your tree is planted, place around 1-3 layers of mulch around the base of the plant to help the plant with retaining water.

Watering: Watering for the European fan palm deeply every other or third day; depending on your climate. This is crucial in the first few months after planting the tree. However; if if it rains, reduce the amount of water you provide the tree. It’s best to water at the base to help assist with drainage, reduce fungal issues and leaf scorch during the summer months. After the plant has been in the ground 6 months you can reduce the amount of water to once or twice weekly, depending on your climate.

Fertilization: Nutrients are vital for palm trees to thrive. As a result, it’s best to put your Sago Palm trees on a fertilization schedule throughout the growing season. Three times a year is typical during the growing season. Feed your plants once in April, June and then again in September. Keep in mind that Sago palms thrive best when their soil pH is between 5.5 and 6.5. In order to achieve this you can apply palm fertilizers that contain the specific nutrients most suited for Palm trees. The slow release of these nutrients will provide consistent, targeted feeding to help your tree grow strong and healthy. If you prefer, you can use a balanced, slow release formula such as 8-8-8, 8-2-12-4 or a 12-6-12 fertilizer for quicker growth. To avoid yellowing and to maintain a healthy shade of green coloring, feed your tree a few spoons full of Epsom salt or a fertilizer that contains nutrients like manganese which will prevent the yellowing and shriveling of the fronds.

How do I distinguish additional trunks from runners that should be pruned? Do the new trunks come out of the ground or from the base of the first trunk?
Steve P on Jan 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Additional trunks come grow alongside the main trunk and can be pruned away. Just make sure you can distinguish the main from the pups.
The main trunk seems to have died but there are trunks coming out of tthe main trunk, do we cut back the main trunk?
Louis H on Nov 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You can prune off the main trunks and one of the other trunks growing out of the main trunk will take over as the lead. You may have to do some additional pruning to shape your tree once the leader takes over. I hope this information is helpful.
