Emily: We transplanted a 15 year old sago.

New Growth


I wanted to say thank you for your web site. I had a 15 year old sago in the front yard which we wanted to move to the back yard next to our new pool. I did everything just as you explained and other than the weight ( much heaver than expected ) the move went smooth.

However, about a month after the move our sago lost about two thirds of its leaves. They slowly turned brown and became dry. I held out hope though, thinking it was just a case of shock, and just today was rewarded with what I believe is a new seed pod! I now have complete confidence the plant will thrive in its new home.

Thanks again,
