Hoo @vec when did you cut the fronds off? I'm yet to do mine, it's currently housed in the greenhouse but can't see any news ones coming through. What should I do ? Help! 🤷🏽‍♀️

This week @Cazx but the advice I was given was not to go too low as it will close the crown up and prevent the knuckles from unfurling. I'm keeping a bit of fleece at hand to shove in the crown in case we have frost forecast. I have been watering mine for a while as it was so dry

#dicksonia-antarctica #foliagefriday It's been a beautiful day here today and very productive. Tip run done of all the greenhouse boxes and wooden frame for the concrete base. Potted up my tulips 🌷🌷🌷 Lots of cutting back and deadheading and one full green bin. Anyone else find cutting back plants therapeutic or am I odd 😂

Evening Bestie @vec I did get out there this afternoon for a couple of hours & found it very therapeutic as well so we must both be odd 👍🤪 didn’t get as much done as you though 😘

@valjones-hughes From what I'm told, the more sun it has the more water you give it. Mine is in sun until 4pm and has at least one full watering can a day. Drench the top and soak the trunk ☺

@debrascott yes the roots are in the trunk. Mine is only buried about 10cm into the soil for stability. I've seen lots of different opinions on feeding. Liquid seaweed is recommended but I feed my big plants (bananas and palms) with tomato feed so that's what it will get 😂

Mine is only a 2 foot trunk @juliesgarden I would have loved a bigger one but can't unless I have a lottery win or see a reduced one at the end of the season 😉

I moved a geum to put it there. Wanted to put it just to the right of where it is further back but that would have meant moving one of my favourite plants ... the Indian summer alstroemeria. Will stick a small banana behind that instead @jadojado29

What size is your tree fern @vec on the hunt for one of these myself but concerned I may get one that is tiny tiny. Searched online but all different sizes and prices.

Mine is around 3ft. If you're buying online @Cazx go to seagrave nurseries. They are highly recommended on the tropical groups that I'm on and they have 25% off at the moment. https://www.seagravenurseries.co.uk/home/tree-ferns?gclid=CjwKCAjwwuvWBRBZEiwALXqjw2_tNdR9kpxfkmcYJJ8YZOq9jhJnOm3Eypd9rasC3tqS-uxRRrkRJxoCUdkQAvD_BwE
