I'm trying to recover it but think it's had it.

What a shame mate :cry:
Did it have any protection or was it just left?

The neighbours kindly "gave me" a nice bamboo. Their large fatsia would be great if planted in more shade. Unfortunately its in full sun so is mainly a sickly yellow green colour

It was protected in the same way as all my red nanas but this year 3 out of four looked to have carked it. All been stored in th same way as the previous 4 winters. Probably two much moisture left in the plants for successful overwintering.

You still look to have a very good backbone of palms there though Kris... icon_thumleft

Cheers Simba, yes the palms have come through great. In hindsight I'm not that bothered about the nanas as they grow so quickly and can be replaced. The palms on the other hand are more expensive to replace and grow a lot slower so glad they have survived.

oh yes my other losses are a couple of eucalyptus seedlings, a small bamboo and a couple of Dicksonia antarctica. My serenoa repens looks to be going down hill too but 95% of my plants have survived so pretty happy

Thats the spirit Kris, and a similar story down here too.
I have been wiped out of pretty much everything other than Trachycarpus palms, Bamboo, Yucca, and my Cycads but as that is pretty much everything that I have planted out, it's not so bad really... icon_thumright

Was this left outside and protected or brought inside?
This is really my first year in plants/trees so I am trying to get as much info as I can.
I really like this nana you have and think I might get one myself.
