My cordyline australis tree (6ft) has suffered over winter. The green upright leaves are now all pointing down and yellowing. Can you tell me why and what I can do?



Cold and snow - these plants should be tied up and wrapped for the winter, but our winters have been so mild we've all got used to not bothering, and so lots of people got caught this year. Wait and see if it starts growing again, if nothing by mid to end of April, cut the stem down to about half (as long as its not all gone soggy) in the hopes it might shoot from the base or up the stem.
