Once we have completed our winter protection of Tree Ferns we tend to forget about them until the spring when we have to take it off again. Now, depending on the prevailing temperatures, weather and type of protection provided a certain amount of maintenance may be necessary - especially if the fronds are wrapped. In this video we discuss what can be done to make sure that come the spring, your tree ferns start the year in the best condition possible.

This is so important, especially in years where there are unseasonably low temperatures or late springs otherwise your tree fern can struggle to get back to conditions and in extreme cases severely damage the plant. So by giving your tree ferns a head start you will have a luxurious canopy in no time!
