My brother recently bought a house with 4 beautiful palms in the front garden about 8 feet high. They have become very scorched and brown at the edges and generally unhealthy looking. He tried giving them a magnesium feed but it didn’t make much difference. The garden is quite sheltered and west facing.

Various plants are called ‘palms’ and each of these respond differently, but, in general, this sounds like exposure to wind. This often happens with new plants and they will adapt, or may suffer continuously if the exposure is too great.

No feeding, Control grass and weeds at the base for at least one metre diameter.
