East Sussex, United Kingdom
I have a 15' cordyline that has sprouted well developed side shoots. However, most of the leaves on these have now turned yellow. I have found that these shoots are soft at the join with main trunk and on pulling away the rotting bark have found little white worms about 1/4 inch long. Any idea what these are and what to do to irradicate them? Also on the main trunk between these side shoots and the top branches, the bark has started to fall off, should I be concerned about this? Advice greatfully received.........
