Just bought 2 of these plants for my garden. Can you tell me what type of soil to put in the plant pots please? Do this like acid or alkali soil? What type of feed if any? Thanks x



Hi Lizferia and welcome to GoY, we'd love to help you but you do need to tell us the name of the plant.

how silly am I???????
I was reading a page about them and presumed it would show up on a dedicated page.
The plants are phoenix canariensis, bought 2, about 5 foot, but need to know how to care for them.
Thanks xxx

Tender, need to be kept in greenhouse but can go outside during summer months, remove to shelter for winter. If you need to repot, best in John Innes No. 2 compost, feed once a month during growing season with something like Phostrogen or general purpose Miracle Gro. Trim off faded leaves as necessary.
