is my tree fern dead? It was left out all winter, I did cover it with bubble plastic but I think the moisture has rotted it as I have no new signs of life, just a few of the stems rotting off! I don't under stand why this has happend as I have had the tree fern for 10 years and it is about 5ft.. Any Information would be great. Jason

Hi Jason....Sorry to hear about your tree fern.....bubble wrap was the wrong thing to use I'm afraid....as you suspect, the moisture may have rotted it. A fabric fleece would have been better to wrap it in....with bracken in the top to protect the new croziers. I would wait for a while before "throwing in the towel"....try watering it with a sugar solution, poured over the top and make sure the trunk is kept moist too....it may still come true.....Good Luck!
