Repotting a Sago Palm

It’s finally feeling like autumn here in the Northeast with temperatures expected in the low to mid 60s for the next few days. My gardeners and outdoor grounds crew will soon move all the tropical plants back into the heated greenhouses where they will spend the winter months, including my collection of sago palms, or cycads, which I enjoy displaying outdoors during summer.

Unfortunately, earlier this week one of my sago palms fell over during a rainstorm. Its pot was completely broken and the plant had to be repotted right away. I love all cycads and have both large and small varieties. In fact, many of the plants started as pups, which were removed from adult specimens and replanted in my greenhouse.
