Evening ❄ This Fatsia sums up the whole garden ☹ The leaves aren't even attached anymore, they've snapped and frozen in position #frozen #dead

You should see my garden. Well actually you can't. It's under so much snow.

Its such a shame but if you cut it back after the frosts it will come back. We used to hard prune ours to keep it under control

Looks so sad Jase ☹ but somehow nature finds the ability to bounce back, and that's what we all have to hang on to at the moment.

Well it's frustrating and disheartening when something was doing so well and then the weather destroys it but plants are resilient and it'll probably come back after the damage is pruned off😊

I admit it looks pretty bad but like others have said it might come back if you hard prune it 🤞 It’s certainly worth a try so don’t give up just yet 😘😘

Cant believe how much growth this Fatsia is putting on this year, loving the rain and its sheltered, shadier spot and is well over 7ft high now 🌴 #fatsia #fatsiajaponica #aralia #japanesearalia #evergreenshrub #foliage #plantsforpollinators

It's perfect. I lost mine to moles this winter. Broke my heart. I potted up what was left of the roots. Maybe new growth next spring but not counting on it 😕💚

It looks great there Jason. I’m hoping mine copes a bit better with the winter wind this year.
