We have what we think is a cordyline. After the severe winter we have had, its not looking great (see photo). Do I:
a) feed it
b) cut it back
c) burn it
d) dig it up
e) just ignore it and hope for the best?
Looking forward to hearing from anybody!!!!
Cheers, Derek

It's not a Cordyline, its a Phormium (New Zealand flax). It's actually looking not too bad, given the winter we've had. Take a sharp pair of secateurs or large sharp scissors and cut out at the base any damaged, tatty or dead leaves.
