i protected my dicksonia antartica fern tree with fleece over the winter but it looks dead how can i tell and can i use something to help revive it because it looks awful and i love it i have had it over 5 years and the weather has never affected it this bad before



Don't do anything yet - everything is so far behind this year, and some plants that appear to be dead might not be. I hope yours is one of those, Rockydog, but of course it might have been affected by the very cold weather.

Wait and see, is the answer. Good luck!

I have 3 tree ferns. that are planted in the garden. Im hoping that mine have survived, like yours they have been fine before so just give them time. I have snipped all the old fronds off just to tidy them up.
