    I have inherited a sago palm growing in my back garden. It has yellow fronds which I have pruned close to the stem just as I did last spring. This year, it is mid-April, and I have not seen any new fronds emerging. How late in the spring in Zone 8 should I expect to wait? I worry it may be damaged.

    I also inherited a two sago palms from my neighbor. Some of the leaves have turned yellow and I see many around my area with yellow leaves, yet they still live on...

    I don't know how they do in zone 8, but here in zone 9a many of them have yellow leaves and they take a very long time to replace those leave with new growth, because it's a very slow-growing plant. I have mine in a perfect area with respect to sun/shade and soil and it has yellow leaves that just stay for a very long time. I don't bother pruning it, I just let it go.

    Thanks. That helps. I value the plant. It adds a tropical look along with my ferns and banana tree. It also contributes to the diversification of our garden.
