the frost killed my palms, but the stems still alive,so i trimmed the palms and all thats left is the stem will it regrow

On plant Washingtonia robusta



Although a fan palm rather than a feather palm, Washingtonia unfortunately is not really hardy in most parts of the UK and after this winter, I suspect the very, very few places it is in the UK will have lost theirs too.

Annoyingly, this palm is sold as an outdoor hardy plant in many garden centres. It isn't!

Whether or not it will come back will depend on how damaged the growing point is. Leave it until June and cross everything that you have.
