Hi,I have a cordyline which was had started to rot from the top of the tree down
West Yorkshire, United Kingdom
Hi all, it's been a long while since I've been on here but I'd just like to give you an update on the cordyline that I cut the middle out of. It rotted and started oozing orange gue out of the bottom of the trunk after that really cold winter. Initially I only took out the middle leaves but when the goo started seeping from the bottom go the trunk I decided to just cut it down, with much trepidation as to whether it would ever come back!
Well, I'm very pleased to tell you all that it did come back from the root stock like someone suggested it might, I have about 5 new sets of leaves that are all about 2 a 3 foot high now. None of them have turned to 'bark' yet - if that's the right word but its looking very healthy. I'll definitely be tying it up for the winter considering how well it has come back.
Thanks to all of you who helped with its return to health!!
