Has My Palm Died
I have a 25 year old palm tree my husband bought in the Isle of Man as a baby. It is well over 10 to 12 foot high with at least 3 arms and I think this winter has taken its toll, as most of the palm leaves have dropped off. I have seen quite a few palm trees in neighbors' gardens have gone the same way. Do you think it will have died in the cold, windy winter we have just had? Or would it rejuvenate itself now the weather has got a little warmer? It would be such a pity to lose it.

It is hard to say how well they will grow back. Most palms do not deal well with lost fronds, but they have been known to recover fine.
