Windmill Palm Tree CareView Full Planting & Care Instructions
Sunlight Plant your Windmill Palm in an area that receives full-partial sun (4-6 hours of direct sunlight per day).
Watering Water your Palm 2-3 times per week for the first month, then once a week for the remainder of the first year after planting. Keep the soil moist but well-drained, watering more in times of drought and less when there is rainfall.
Fertilizing If necessary, apply a slow-release, palm specific fertilizer (granule form or spikes) in the spring, summer and fall.
The Best Cold Hardy Palm
Why Windmill Palm Trees?
Thanks to this fresh variety, the Palm isn't relegated to only tropical locales. Because the Windmill Palm is one of the most cold hardy palms available on the market today, it's a dream come true for those who want island-inspired good looks in colder climates.
Northern gardening climates, even in growing zone 7, are still able to grow this stunning island beauty. And not only is Windmill Palm cold tolerant, but it's also unbelievably low-maintenance and naturally pest resistant, too.
Plus, it's got the good looks to match its effortless ease. Magnificent in stature, the Windmill Palm has fresh, fan-like fronds that are arranged symmetrically in a bunched group. This forms a crown of stunning green foliage that grows atop the trunk and can grow 6 to 10 feet wide.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: You don't have to immediately repot your plant - you'll only need to repot approximately every other year, once your Palm outgrows its shipped container or original pot. Increase the pot size by 2 inches each time you repot to accommodate new growth. For the Windmill palm it can get quite large so if starting in a container make sure to eventually plan to plant inground.
If growing outdoors make sure you give the palm well-draining soil and adequate space above to grow.
2. Watering: Mist your Palm weekly if kept indoors in addition to regular watering – this ensures that its native humid climate is simulated in your home. If you're not sure when to water, simply check the soil about 2 inches down. If the soil is dry here, it's time to water.
FGT Tip: If fronds begin to yellow, it could be a sign of overwatering. If you see yellowed fronds, allow time for the soil to dry before watering your plant again. Browning fronds, however, mean that your Palm is not getting enough water and needs more. Using a well-draining potting mix is key in getting this balance.
3. Pruning: Simply any fronds as they turn yellow or brown. This improves the look of your plant and creates clean space for healthier green fronds to grow.
4. Fertilizing: You can apply palm fertilizers that contain specific nutrients best suited for palms. If you prefer, you can also use a balanced fertilizer, such as an 8-8-8 formula, for quicker growth in spring and summer.

I ordered two Windmill Palms to flank our new deck. I live one town over from the warehouse so delivery was very quick, as expected. The palms were packaged extremely well and very robust. The size were as expected based on the pot size and other reviews. It’s been four weeks since they’ve been planted and they are doing very well. Will purchase again.
