Tree fern help

Post by Ginab » Tue Jul 24, 2018 7:20 pm

Hi all
I've had a tree fern for a few years it's alway come through the winter fine
After the last one I thought it was dead
It had lots of dead nubs on the top.
I pulled off some dead bits at the side and saw green bits
My question is
Will it ever be the same?
I've been giving it lots of water

Hard to say. Lots have lost their tree ferns after last winter. To give yours a chance you need to completely remove any dead or damaged Crozier's in the crown to allow any new growth to push up. Keep very well watered and everything crossed.
Most wanted list - Any Young Trachycarpus and/or fern.
