Lancashire, United Kingdom
I have an Australian Tree Fern (Dicsonia Antarctica) which is about 3 years old. Over the past couple of years the crown has reduced quite significantly. I moved the plant to a more shaded part of the garden but the crown continues to reduce. I feed regularly with a high potash feed and lag the crown and the trunk over winter. Despite our last terrible winter it did survive but I'm wondering will the crown expand to its original size or will it continue to reduce. Also, what can I do to help this plant.
