OK, so my palm is actually a Royal Palm - I did tag it onto a Queen Palm thread earlier. THe thing is it has grown in our garden for years and is about 20 feet tall and has a span of about 8 feet per leaf. We recently had a second floor added to the house (about 18 months ago). The palm survived the building work, flowered and has grown about 3 or 4 feet since. Then I reseeded the lawn and planted some flowers. A bit of miracle gro went on the lawn and flowers, but not much. Over the last few weeks the leaves have all turned brown. There is a new spike growing which is green. At the top of the trunk there is green and there is a leafy thing hanging down from behind where the last old leaf fell - also green/white. I have put fertilizer spikes in and I am watering these every day to try and get them into the soil. Should I remove the brown leaves to try and save the rest of the tree? Will new leaves grow and if so how long will that take? Can anybody suggest what is wrong? Is there a way of giving 'intensive care' and does it need it?
