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.

How long have you had them for? Do you cover them up for winter??? How big were they when you got them? I absolutely love them💚🌴

comment
davewrightjoinerygooglemail.co

@belindah the one one the right is in its 4th year belindah, i get them as a 3ft trunk from #seagravenurseries for around £80.00 you can see where they were at growth wise from where the fronds are starting to form the trunk. I wrap them up in winter, straw in the crown and fleece around. Their a lot hardier than people think, but i just go on the cautious side.

belindah

Ah thanks. Yes buying them smaller makes it a lot more affordable, as long as you're willing to be patient! I've got 2 (relative babies to yours!) Which only have the beginnings of a trunk so far. I got one last year at Hampton Court flower show and the other the year before (around just £15 each but a long long way to go till they get to your two's size!) I think I may have to treat myself to a 3 foot one in the near future! 😊💚🌴👍

Ive got 3 with 3ft trunks in the ground, and another 3ftr in a pot, just to give it a bit more height. The little one, my wife got me for my birthday from b&q, and to be fair is doing brilliantly. Their easily moved around the little ones, the 3ftrs are heavy to move. I think possibly their better in the ground, if only to get the root system a bit better.

If your happy where it is, then yes. Just put plenty of fleece or straw in the crown, to keep the frost out, and it should be ok. Their more hardier than people think.

I've got mine stuffed with fleece rather than straw and I've folded the browned fronds into it for a bit of extra protection but I did give it a good couple of soaks last week. I read somewhere that more die from lack of watering than frost damage

@mariomartins i just went on youtube, and followed what they adviced on there. They got through last winter ok, so im just sticking to what worked last winter. I cut the fronds off once they turn black, and then put some more fleece around then.

@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 😊👍
