Morning folks....morning Snow 

back from my usual walk to the beach......Spike would not me allow a lie in .  Clear, starry, dry and cold.  Hardy souls with their surfboards heading for the sea.....want to clear the water?   shout "shark" 

Is this proof......

Talkback: Protect cordyline for winter

Posted: 15/01/2016 at 18:57

No Suzanne.

cordylines are survivors at root level.  Often if top is frosted or "killed" the root system is fine snd will send up suckers. 

Irma, yes cover your cordyline over winter if you normally get severe conditions.

Agree with Nut.....layering is usually effective.

midwinter fire should still root from hardwood cuttings though.  Pruning it is slightly different too...less severe as it seems to suffer die back.  

Can I, should I hoe?

Was Gusto a bit on the heavy side?

we all get to know our soils, how quickly it dries out, etc. Do it next time after a week or so of dry weather.....yes! we will get some dry spells 

Kalmia Latifolia poorly?

Andy....surprised by that on a plant fresh from nursery.  Well done for contacting RHS 

inform Burncoose.  They will want to know and it also covers you in the event it goes same way as the original.

keep in a pot then.
