New Zealand tree fern (Dicksonia antarctica (Soft tree fern))

Saw these everywhere on a journey round New Zealand and loved them. Now have three in my garden.

They were wrapped all winter and tucked away from winds. The weather now is warm enough to remove their jackets.

Yes for wind but not frost until May is out.
