Just restarted gardening as my hobby. Hoping to turn the front garden which is in the town Centre into something special. Help may be required.

If it gets really wet its best to replace the straw or it can rot the core . Or you could tie up the leaves to protect the centre . Also wrap the top of the trunk with fleece and then cover the fleece with old sacking if you want it to look natural . You probably know all this already Dave !

@davewrightjoinerygooglemail.co @debrascott gave a tip on the other pic and that's how I do it. ... otherwise the frost will kill the new buds and will root the trunk from the top. .. that's the fragile and delicate part of the #tasmanian-tree-fern 😊👍
