Well well well

5 years ago we transported our cordyline palm from Putney to Croydon and it was fine. It has been planted 7 years and thriving well, all green. I moved it again without disturbing the root but 3 weeks later it look like it has had it. Any advice please, will it come back eventually.





How do you know that you didn't disturb the roots? The roots normally extend for twice the diameter of the top of the tree.

Bound to have disturbed the roots unless you used a digger and a crane - water water water is the only treatment, and keep your fingers crossed.

It may already be too late, but removing 1/2 to 2/3 of the leaves, starting with the oldest ones, might have helped.
