what should i do with cordyline that died off in frost
It may sprout from the base if it was well established. Leave it until June before digging it up in case it resprouts.

They can offer both colour and structure to the garden but at this time of year and after a winter like the one we've all endured, they look tatty. For this reason I've dug mine up and put it in a pot so I can over-winter it in the GH. As Volunreer says I'm going to wait to see if it re-grows.

thanks for that . the trunck of the cordyline is about 5 ft high so if it sprouts from the base should i cut the trunck down
Blimey you have got a big'n, yes chop it off once the new shoots look healthy.
I,ll see what happens so, i was hoping someone was going to tell me to leave it alone and it will recover ,as you can imagine because of its size it was quite a focal point in the garden . what a shame!

I have 2 5 foot red cordylines next to each other i planted them about 10 years ago and they were only about 1 ft high when i planted them they were spectacular everyone comments on them and in the summer when you sit in the garden you feel like you are abroad. The weather has never affected them before but only a couple of days ago all the leaves/spikes have completely fallen off both of them and all that is left is 2 5ft trunks that are about 6 inches wide i am devastated. I am not a brilliant gardener but i am learning but i dont know if i have to just cut these right down or dig them up and get rid of them please can someone advise me. Thank you
How do I say thanks?
