There's a type of Palm tree which has grown profusely without mishap in our garden on the comparatively mild west coast of Anglesey in North Wales for about forty years. This year, the heavy snow and frost has caused tremendous damage and I am very much afraid that my palms and those in neighbouring gardens may be dying as a result. The clump of leaves are breaking off at the crown and falling off one by one. Can anyone please advise of any procedure that may save these valuable trees? I add photographs with apologies for not knowing the correct name for the species. We have always referred to them as "Anglesey Palms"
