what if my cordyline is planted in the ground. Is it the same technique?

Great advice thank you :-)

The recent snow has damaged the leaves on my cordyline - broken them at the stem so they wont stand up. What should I do with the plant now - will this kill it off?

will standing in its pot in a plastic greenhous be sufficient? do i open door/window during the day?

Thank You

I did all that was shown on the video but come spring my lovely cordyline had rotted why and my other one that was in a pot and not covered is flourishing ?

Hi carol, wet is more of an issue for a cordyline than anything, and if a wet pot then gets exposed to a severe cold snap that won't help.  Was the first one in very wet soil to start with? The second one might have been in drier conditions  and in a more sheltered spot.  Any other info you can give will help with advice or suggestions. 

Giving them the protection of a house wall can help enormously - they get less rain and exposure to severe weather that way. Just make sure it's not the wall which is in the direction of the prevailing wind and rain though!
