Re: Soil temperatures today
Glad to hear things are warming up. Hopefully longer term heat is onboard for the summer.
My yard is starting recovery. The Christmas palms will need to grow out the damage. The coconut I'm keeping a close eye on. Currently it's being treated with copper fungicide and was fed extra manganese and potassium (both which are naturally low in FL but more critical in spring as cold roots have trouble absorbing them). It's pushed out 3 fronds since Feb already but all have had some issues. Bud rot is a big concern and a risk to kill the palm right now...hopefully I can get that under control. I did lose a croton and a plumeria. But all my palms took some form of damage (most are fine though).
Thanks for asking.
