Date palm I like the article

Watering Date palmTenere asciutto
Water rarely, about once every 4-5 weeks with 1-2 buckets of water , keeping the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when wetting we suggest avoiding surpluses, however to wet the soil deep down. We advise watering the young specimens, or the recently sheltered ones; the adult specimens usually are satisfied with rain water.

Exposure Date palmSole pieno
The Date palm should be grown in a bright place, with direct sunlight. The Date palm should be grown outdoors; it can bear very harsh temperatures without any problems, even many degrees below zero.With a particularly windy climate we suggest securing young trees to long solid stakes, to avoid that the wind could bare young and not very developed roots; specimens which are only a few years old might fear intense cold and wind.

Generalities Date palm
The Date palm develops in an erect manner and, as the years go by, becomes a tree. These plants have an arcuate deportment, like palm trees. The Date palm Is medium in size; in winter it assumes a green colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round.

Treatments Date palm
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.

Soil Date palm
Grow these plants in a dissolved and deep, but well drained soil.
