Join Us For "Palm Trees" on In The Garden Radio

Palm Trees
How can you tell that a movie is set in Southern California? Just look at all the signature Southern California trees – the (mostly) NON-CALIFORNIA NATIVE Palms!

This week on In the Garden with UC Master Gardeners, UC Master Gardener Kris Bonner talks to Don Hodel, environmental horticulturist for the UCCE Los Angeles County.

They will cover everything about growing palm trees – selecting, feeding, and care. Palms are unique from other trees as they are monocots and do not form annual tree rings. They have been utilized for centuries for food, shelter, and shade.

Learn all about caring for one of the most valuable elements in your landscape. This is a replay of the show first aired in 2016. All the more relevant as we approach another drought situation and we as gardeners need to know how to maintain one of the most expensive type of tree in the yard.
