treefern and pampas grass last autumn

Tree fern is yet to have any ferns this year but I can feel 2 coming up slowly and they are green when scratched.

Had my tree fern for 11 years,after 2009 winter it suffered badly making just two small fronds in Aug 2010 but i am afraaid this year it is dead even though it was wraped in layers of fleece and straw throught out last was a similar size to yours.will see what this winter brings before considering a replacement.hope you have better luck.

ferns are still tucked into crown,three there now but very small.But at least there is signs of life.This winter as well as all the usual wrapping I am going to put a bowl on top to stop the crown and new ferns getting frozen wet and rotting off.Hope for a great plant next year.I got 2 great treefern trunks from Vale exotics (online)they were £40 each for 2ft trunk plus £12each for next day delivery.They each had 12ferns in the crowns.I still love the old one though it was my first.
