Last winter's arctic temperatures have destroyed my 2 well established palms here on the West coast of Ireland (minus 15 centigrade I think)
I can see that ,although they appeared dead there are actually buds coming now , but only at ground level and very slowly.
Is there a chance that the plants may survive or is this a bit like the way hair and nails will continue to grow on a cadaver after death has occurred?
The actual trunk seems OK in most places (it is seeping here and there) but ,as I said , the only buds are at ground level.
Also , if this does survive , is there any chance it may reshoot from higher up and so retain some of its earlier glory?
