Last year I wrapped up my 4 Cordylines which are in pots. I carefully gathered up the leaves on each plant, loosely tied them and then wrapped in garden fleece. To my great disappointment all 4 plants suffered damage over the winter. When I unwrapped them they had rotted. 3 of them now have small shoots at the base but one is dead. I'm not sure what to do about protecting them again this winter. I don't have a greenhouse or cold frame. I purchased a cheap plastic greenhouse from Wilko but vastly under estimated the size of the pots (much to my husbands amusement). Does anyone have any suggestions? Should I pack them with straw and then wrap in fleece?
