Pygmy Date Palms for Containers - Enhance Your Patio or Pool Area...The Gregory Palm Farms 714-814-8525 or 760-975-4605!

One of the finest of the dwarf palms, Pygmy Date Palm slowly reaches 6 to 12 feet in height and has an upright or curving, single trunk topped with a dense, full crown of gracefully arching, three-foot-long leaves. The insignificant flower clusters, hidden by the foliage, are present periodically throughout the year and produce small, jet-black dates which ripen to a deep red. Pygmy Date Palm is quite popular as a specimen planting or in containers, especially attractive at poolside. It is usually used as a single specimen although it is also effective in groups of three or more. Gregory Palm Farms is a San Diego Palm tree grower and has a variety of field-grown Pygmy Date Palms in all sizes. These Pygmy Date Palms excel in containers of all kinds. Also looks great by patios and entry ways. Use clumps of these palms as specimens and to serve as focal point in a mass planting of annuals. Also nice combined with evergreen shrubs in a mixed hedge. Call us today if you would like to install some Pygmy Date Palm trees from Gregory Palm Farms to enhance the beauty and value of your home.

HOW TO TRIM AND PRUNE YOUR PALM TREES!!! BY GREGORY PALM FARMS - 714) 814-8525 OR 760) 975-4605


















 Palm Tree Pruning!!



Well its that time of year when the palms are growing happily and loosing those old leaves from last season! If you are a homeowner or landscaper and you are trimming your palms yourselves or want to give your trimmers some advice, here are some helpful tips on how to prune your palms -



Most palm trees shed their fronds naturally, but other palms drop the fronds after some time. When it is necessary to prune the palm trees, never remove fronds that do not hang below a line parallel to the ground.



When not pruning palms correctly, palms can reduce their vigor, transmit diseases, reduce their health nutritionally, affect cold hardiness and lower their tolerance to handle wind if over trimmed. The best advice on what to trim on palm trees is this- Remove only badly damaged or dead fronds, also remove new flower shoots and/or seeds. This way you never over trim your palm tree and will have a nice looking head of fronds.



"Palm trees produce one leaf at a time, and once a full crown of leaves is achieved in mature individual,(for some palms this is just 4-5 leaves, while other species, this can be over 120 leaves) every new leaf formed is followed by an old leaf dying. This number, unique to each palms, is the ideal number of leaves for that palm to have to grow optimally. Any less leaves than that number and the palm will grow sub- optimally, or slower. Sub- optimal numbers of fronds can weaken a palm too, and make it more vulnerable to wind damage, parasites and fatal infections.


Green palm leaves, or fronds, are the palms sole source of food (from photosynthesis). Fertilizer is NOT food, but a source of micro nutrients that the palms uses, along with water and sunlight to make its food. When green leaves are removed, the palm cannot make the ideal amount of food it needs to survive, Fortunately most palms are quite tolerant of this 'abuse' and can deal with suboptimal amounts of green leaves...up to a point." (excerpt in Dave's Garden from Pruning Palms By Geoff Stein, February 23, 2008)



Also, when trimming you palm be vary wary of Palm Trees trunks and avoid anything that you think can damage the trunks. If you damage the inner soft area of the trunk while pruning there is a good chance the damage will not heal when mature.



1. Make sure to clean your tools before pruning with a little bleach and water, make sure to wipe shears clean with a dry towel before use. You can use short shears, long armed tree shears, or extend able tree cutters for those hard to reach branches. (Never pull on a frond to finish off the trim, this will rip the stem and create an open sore and prone to disease.)



2. If palms fronds are yellow, brown or broken prune them off along the trunk side (do not dig into the palm).



3. Make sure to remove loose leftover boots (parts of fronds that are attached to the trunk after trimming).



4. Care of palms include removing palm flower and fruit stalks. When a palm produces fruits it takes strength away from the tree. Also, fruits provide food for pests, are messy and stain concrete surfaces, and will sometimes germinate in undesired areas of your landscape.





Always make sure to give your palms plenty of water along with drainage and fertilizer to keep your palm green and happy :)




If you have any questions email or give us a call!!




Have a wonderful day!

Windmill Palm-Trachycarpus Fortunei

The Windmill palm makes a great accent which fits well into small areas like courtyards and entries. It is a tough plant and survives in both hot & cold urban landscapes and even thrives in Northern California and Washington climates.

Windmill palm is perfect for containers if care is taken that they are well drained. It is very attractive planted in groves and groupings especially when plants of different heights are staggered in irregular patterns.

Windmill Palm Characteristics

Stem/Trunk:
Single stem that is 8-10" in diameter.Trunks are usually covered with a loose mat of coarse gray or brown fiber.

Exposure: Partial shade is best, also cold hardy

Soil: Well drained soil
Water: Adequate moisture makes for rapid growth and best appearance but it is amazingly drought tolerant

Growth Rate: Moderate - 30'-40' height
