The leaves on my Sago Palm are going yellow…Why?

This is due to a mineral deficiency, either iron or magnesium usually.

If you apply Epsom Salts in a diluted solution (as per packet instructions) around the base of the plant this can sometimes correct the problem.

Quite often a feed of a quality slow release fertiliser will help immensely as well.

    Hi there Steve
    That’s a tough one. Maybe the area is too shaded? I can’t help you with any other suggestions there.

    Thanks Ernest for your lovely comments. We really appreciate feedback. I get to the blog when I can 7 write new snippets of nursery news. Kind regards Janine
