DIY Palm Tree Fertilizers

DIY Palm Tree Fertilizers

Palm trees need a variety of nutrients to thrive and grow, but many of them may be depleted from your soil without even knowing it. Your palm tree will grow best when the soil includes magnesium, iron, manganese, potassium, nitrogen, and copper sulfates. With a combination of the right ingredients, you can help give your palm trees the nutrients they need.

When you are ready to plant beautiful, thriving palms, call the team at Desert Empire Palms. Our Coachella Valley palm tree growers can help you create the landscape of your dreams.

Feed Your Palms with the Right Ingredients

You can make your palm tree fertilizer using different ingredients that deliver each essential nutrient. With the simple ingredients listed below, you give your palms the chance to thrive. You can blend the ingredients or distribute them one by one. Palms will do great if they are fertilized three times each year, but our team can help you find the perfect fertilizing schedule.

  • For nitrogen, use a feather meal, soybean meal, or bat guano (which also contains phosphorus and potassium).
  • Manganese can be found in spinach, kale, beets, leafy vegetables, whole grains, and nuts. (Most leafy vegetables also contain magnesium.)
  • For iron, use orange peels, dried oranges, or a blood meal. A blood meal is also a good source of nitrogen.
  • Potassium and calcium can be found in eggshells.

If you want a simpler way to give your palms what they need, you can use store-bought houseplant food and combine it with kitchen scraps, one tablespoon of Epsom salt, and one liter of water.
