Splitting Palm tree

Posted: 26/04/2015 at 18:07

Well i think I will forgo the division as I was expecting a mass of root structure and badly got a large underground trunk!

I have soaked the roots and will repeat tomorrow anyone want to give odds on survival?

My mother has a large Austrailn Palm that was frost damaged years ago and grew 3 separate new trunks. The old trunk is still there and was cut to about 3 feet the new trunks are around 6 feet. Do you think it would be possible to divide the palm into 3?. Any my advice on how to proceed with this?

I've been after one for a while and a month ago managed to get a used Cedar greenhouse on eBay for £100. It's 18x8 and around 30 year old so well built.

It took me around 90 hours to complete and total cost was around £350.

I have uploaded a video to youtube of my restoration.

If you can't be bothered to view it then here are some spoiler pics!

Hi All,

Have cut my hedge down by half, not sure of the type but is not conifer, more like a box/yew.

I have mulched,fed and watered it but anyone got any idea's about whether it will recover.

Looks like a way for the big seed companies to enlarge their mail order book.
