below average temps how to fertilize?

14 years ago

The long range summer forecast frot the great lakes is that it will not get hot. The past week (and upcoming week) have been beautiful for humans (mid-high 70s, loads of sun and low humidity) but cool for tropical palms. I have two coconuts, two small bottle palms, musa basjoo bananas, two sabal palmettos, 3 sabal minors, 1 butia capita, and two mexican blue palms. They are all growing but much slower than they would in a warmer summer. Will a little extra fertiliaing help or hurt. I know enough not to over fertilize but I'm wondering if a little extra will speed up growth some. It's dropping into the mid 50s here at night.
