Just a hint for you ... Google translate is not a reliable tool for an advertising copywriter 

Cordyline in trouble?

Posted: 27/05/2017 at 09:40

That looks like a drought problem to me, plus are some of them old leaves that need removing from the base. 

Are there any new leaves appearing? 

Chelsea chop - some already flowering?

If they're already blooming I wouldn't give them the full Chelsea chop, but you could carefully chop one stem in three which would extend the flowering season.

Squash, cucumber, something along those lines. As it's inside try pollinating the flowers and see what fruit you get.

Pdoc.  I'll get OH to bring a Norfolk Apple cake back with him ... He'll be home very soon :-). Afraid I won't be baking for a bit but the ones at the farm shop are scrummy. 

Fairy I've got a big strap on knee support , but I've not felt the need to use it since having loads of physio, taking up tennis and being more active since retiring ... OH has taken it out of the drawer ... Looks like I'll be wearing it again sooN. At the moment I'm having to rest until Tuesday when I go to the fracture clinic.

That's the problem Fairy.  I didn't trip ... Just my unstable hyperflexive knee just dropped me on the spot as I changed direction. Imagine one of your legs suddenly dematerialising ... Flat on your face ... 

What's this?

It looks like a Cornus ... Can't say which one from that pic. Any chance of seeing more of the plant, colour of stems etc?
