I have a 6ft Cordilyne which looks as though its dead, no new growth at all for a year now.
I took the procaution of wrapping the lower trunk with fleece for the winter, only to remove it today to find a rotten base of the tree, which has been a home for wood lices.
I thought yes it's dead now, but then i noticed a few root shoots coming out from above the rotten hole, about 8 inches from the ground.
I am wondering should I put a large pot over it, with the bottom missing and if I filled it up with dirt, would it re root itself in time?
Or should i just give up on it?
Any comments welcome.
