Cordeline Blues!
I have a house high 5 trunk cordeline which sadly has suffered during the winter. Only one trunk is producing leaves and the rest are practically frond bare. New growth is sprouting all around the base which has the stumps of three other trunks.
Is rthere anything I can do save this palnt or shall I just saw down everything left?



It's an excellent sign that there's new growth from the base. Saw down the trunks that have died off and the new shoots will take their places over time.

My sister in law had one in her tiny front garden and it was cut back level three times and still popped up again and grew well. No winters like the last 2 though.
