Palm Trees – Fertilizing

Q: Can you tell me where to find fertilizer for a Windmill Palm I’ve had for 10 years, or what to use as a substitute? I have had to remove fronds 5 feet up already and most of the tips above have turned slightly brown. I have fed it 10-10-10 only a couple of times.

A: I think you can just continue using the 10-10-10 plus some compost or manure to add the micronutrients a palm needs.
