Saw Palmetto Growing Tips and Advice

Saw Palmetto appreciates well-drained but moist soil and lots of sun. This tropical palm, which does not like much wind or frequent temperatures below 14 degrees F, attracts bees which make honey from its flowers.

 

Planting Saw Palmetto

Seed that is not fresh should be soaked 24 hours prior to planting. This palm can be transplanted easily and will rejuvenate even if root damage occurs. The suckers do not do as well as plants sown from seed when grown in containers, since large sizes don't transplant well when field dug. Like many palms, this hardy plant grows slowly.
