How do I care for my fan palms?


By Bpapts

I have two dwarf fan palms. Living in South Carolina, we often have temps below freezing in the winter months, and the fans on my palms die. In the spring we trim the dead fans as the new growth appears. Should I be pruning these fans when the winter first sets in to avoid the ugly brown fans? Is there a certain fertilizer that should be used and when?
