tree fern

I have had a tree fern for a number of years and it has been quite hardy surving some coled winters.

however each year the fronds seem to be smaller & smaller. At the moment it has only three fronds which are only about 4 or 5 inches in length

I know these plants should be far more spectacular - any suggestions of how to improve the situation would be welcomed

RE: tree fern

what kind of tree fern and what method are you using??

RE: tree fern

As well as an ID, a photo would be helpful. There are hundreds of species of tree fern so there's lots of possibilities on what the problem might be.
