Hi Sharon,

This is fairly normal, so I wouldn’t be too alarmed. However it could be a sign of poor drainage, as these plants don’t like to sit in waterlogged soil. The ideal situation is to have them in gritty well drained soil, and water regularly during the growing season. You should also be feeding it with something like a palm feed over the growing season.

You will need to give it some protection over the winter, and in time repot it to a larger pot.

Hope this helps? Remember to add to your ‘plants I have’ list to receive regular care instructions: http://www.shootgardening.co.uk/plant/phoenix-canariensis?referrer=%2Fplant%2Fsearch%3Fq%3Dphoenix+canariensis%26amp%3Bsearch_submit_x%3D16%26amp%3Bsearch_submit_y%3D11

Many thanks to you both for your responses.
I've just rehoused the Palm into a large pot and put it against the garage that gets the most sun. I'll be doing the same with the Cordyline soon, (but with a 10 day old daughter, time is tight.. haha)

I'll repost on here when/if I see any improvement with these 2 distressed plants.

Phoenix canariensis Canary Island date palm (Phoenix canariensis)

Question from Darren Gregory

In forum: General


I have a Phoenix Canariensis that was fine last year, but has now gone almost completely brown and wilting. Is this just due to the time of year, (post winter) or have is it not in the best place. The soil is pretty heavy clay, and gets sun in the morning only. The same is happening with a Cordyline Red Star that is nearby, however other plants, (like Hebe Red Edge and Spotted Laurel) are flourishing there.

Raised planter in need of trailing plants.

Question from Jill

In forum: Garden Landscaping and Design Forum Event

I have a raised planter along the side of my patio and pergola it is planted with - phoenix canariensis/red leaf banana/strelitzia reginae x 3/phormium rainbow queen/melianthus major /hemerocallis nova x 4/alstroemeria inca tropic x 3 and a vitis siegerrebe. Please can you recommend some plants that would trail down over the side of this planter to complement the rest of my planting scheme and also a few low plants.
