My cordyline has been wrapped over winter with bubble wrap. Sadly it looks dead. If I cut down the dead leaves will it revive?



Yes, it might, rather depends whether the roots are still active or not. You don't say where you are, but if you're in the mild west or south, cut down now - if you're north or midlands, wait a week or two and do it then.
In future, don't use bubblewrap to protect it - use horticultural fleece, and always remove the wrappings when the weather in winter is mild - you only need to have it wrapped properly when the temperature falls to 4 degrees and below.

bubble wrap is best for rapping plant pots as aposed to plants as they cant breath and they sweat inside it .
