I was bought a Canary Island Date Palm Sept 2009, it looked great. During the winter I was told it was hardy and did not need covering so I didnt and it snowed. The old leaves turned brown and I cut some of them back, a new leaf grow and then turned brown, now the plant has stopped growing. What shall I do next??

On plant Phoenix canariensis



I'm sorry but you have been misinformed. This plant though probably the hardiest of the so-called feather palms is still not that hardy and unfortunately for you, we have just had the worst winter in the UK for something like 15 years. I'm guessing here but I would say that it could well be dead.
