The recession won’t be too bad if all hands are to be on deck, without plenty cost and some little knowledge we can build a great economy in Africa with Agriculture.
Coconut palms are common in the lush landscapes of tropical regions. Traditionally, they provided food, water and shelter to Pacific Islanders. Malayan dwarf coconut palm trees are popular in warm climates. The name can be misleading because a dwarf can reach up to 60 feet in height with a canopy of 20 feet across. They often grow well in pots but eventually grow too large to be kept indoors and should be planted in the ground.
1. Choose an appropriate location for your coconut palm, where the tree will see full sun during the daylight hours. Give the tree enough room to grow to at least 30 feet tall and 15 to 20 feet wide without crowding from other nearby trees.
2. Amend clayey soil by mixing it with organic matter like peat moss, to encourage proper drainage.
3. Dig a hole just deep enough for the root ball of the dwarf coconut palm.
4. Insert the root ball into the hole and cover it with soil, so the uppermost roots of the plant are approximately 1 inch below the surface of the soil.
5. Spread 3 or 4 inches of organic mulch on the soil beneath the crown of the tree, but do not allow the mulch to come within 4 inches of the trunk.
6. Water the tree deeply, until puddles form around the base of the tree.
Things You Will Need
? Organic mulch
• Low-lying soil that floods during the rainy season may be inappropriate for dwarf coconut tree growth. If you must plant in this type of location, plant your tree in a mound of well-draining growing medium, several feet wide and several feet high, placed on top of the native soil.
• Water deeply every two or three days until established, then give 1 inch of water weekly when rainfall does not supply this amount.
• Coconut trees benefit from regular applications of palm fertilizer, but should not be fertilized at the time of planting.
