... winter will kill them. Chameorhops will survive all but the worst winter. Non palm, try T rex (mine is in the ground 7 years & is BIG) likewise gunnera if you can give it enough water. Try Miscanthus gigantus, musa basjoo, phormiums, Hardy yuccas are good too,

Gunnera manicata advice please!

Interesting, i've moved it next to my other one now so it only gets morning sun instead of afternoon sun. It hasn't got any worse so i'm pretty sure it's going to be fine. Thanks for all the help.

The sun has been exceptional relentless this summer. I have had establish plants with crispy leaves that have been on th same postition for several years. I have watered them and I don't usually have to.

My large clump is planted in a natural spring but is still struggling to stay upright without extra watering in this heat...mine is in full sun..keeping in pots must be a nightmare in these conditions.

it could of course be sun scorch if seller had kept in shady area and told you to do the same .Although they can be kept in full sun it is always wise to slowly introduce them from shade to full sun over a period of time to acclimatise.

... moment, i'm not sure why. But no, they were repotted when i got them about a month ago in fresh compost which stays very wet. Is it possible for gunnera to be too wet / overwatered? It may just be shock from going from a shady pollytunnel out in to the sun but it's only one leaf and it was fine ...
