I have a lovely New Zealand Fern where each year the fronds unfurl from the centre (up to 10 each year). This year I can feel a great amount again but as yet they have not started to open from inside the trunk, I am sure in the past that it was much further on than it is now. I did cover it in the winter and it looks healthy enough. Have I done something wrong, could it be dead, what can I do to help?




Not much, its a result of the very cool weather conditions we've had throughout most of May. Just give it time, lots of plants are late this year, and a lot of those that came out during April got nipped by frost anyway.
