June – August is the rainy season in North Central Florida. Warm temperatures and high relative humidity makes summer the ideal time for planting palms and tropical plants. Always use caution when transporting and handling your palm not to snap the heart. Tie up the fronds and terminal bud with twine to protect from damage. When planting make sure not to bury the root ball too deep and always keep mulch 4″ away from the trunk.
