Can I prune my ponytail? Because a couple of stems of the top part of the ponytail is growing underneath my patio.
Thank you

Answer: Hi Sharon,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Ponytail palm can be pruned by removing the stems back to the main trunk. It is best to feed the tree after prune with fertiliser. We recommend applying ‘Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver and Plant Fertiliser’ as a complete, soil-conditioning fertiliser. It’s certified for use in organic gardens and will help create a nutrient rich soil for better root growth, stronger plants and more flowers and fruit! It can be used on gardens all year round, including native plants.
