I had the following date palm just installed and I have a few questions I'd love to get some expert options on:
It came tied up as I expected and the place that sold me it said I should leave it tied for a month. I read up to 2 months online. What would you recommend? The tree seems to have a lot of frond and not a lot of trunk.
Do the roots look too exposed to you? Would you add some more soil around the roots or do you think it's fine the way it is?
How often would you water the palm given that it's just been installed? And how often after it's been here a while?
How would you set up the irrigation for it? I was going to do dripline irrigation in a circle around the palm? Would you add a drip emitter as well or something else entirely?
I'm in Sacramento, CA so it faces a long hot dry summer.
