Q.No Fronds On My Dicksonia Antarctica

Zone Cheshire | Ellen Cooper added on May 23, 2024 | Answered

I have 3 tree Ferns 2 of which have failed to produce new fronds for over 12 months. I have covered them for winter with fleece and covered the crowns. They are in pots and have been for 4years. Are they not producing fronds because they are pot bound and need repotting or putting in the ground?

If these don't get fed regularly, then it could be that they are lacking nutrients. This can definitely be caused by being rootbound in the pot.

You can choose to repot in to a bigger container, or you can plant into the ground. Either will be a good remedy for the situation.
