TIME FOR A TRIM?

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - HOME -

TREE ferns soon be­come badly con­gested with dead and dy­ing fronds. They burn like a torch and can be par­tic­u­larly dan­ger­ous dur­ing dry sum­mers if grow­ing close to a house. The fronds are eas­ily cut off close to the main stem and old, ne­glected plants can be given new life if all fronds are re­moved. New, healthy fronds ap­pear within weeks.
