Planting & Care
Take care when planting date palms to choose a location with plenty of space both vertically and horizontally. Plant the trees in spring or fall for best results. Dig the hole twice as deep and wide as the actual root base to loosen the soil. Fill the bottom of the hole with soil so the plant is sitting high and roots are barely covered. Press soil around the roots and water well to compact the soil around them.

Water: The tree is tolerant of drought but needs plenty of water when flowering and fruiting.

Temprature: Date palm growing requires temperatures above 20 degrees Fahrenheit (-6 C.) to survive. Pollination takes place at 95 degrees (35 C.) and fruits need dry, hot temperatures with warm nights.

Fertilizer: Manure makes an excellent fertilizer in early spring. You can also use a palm tree fertilizer high in potassium.
