Lancashire, United Kingdom
I have a Dickensonia Antarctica tree fern which has been planted in the ground for the last three years.It has always thrived and has prolific fronds annually.This year,however,after removing the fleece protection and last years bracken it seems to have a reddish/brown sludge in the crown.Is it safe to say it's dead?Would cutting the trunk lower to the ground remove the affected portion? I am devastated as over winter care has always been a priority.Any ideas would be most appreciated. Thanks Kevo.
