Hi,
MY cordylines are badly affected after the frost, when is it OK to cut them back and how far back will I go.

Cordylines have taken a hammering with two consecutive harsh winters.

You can remove dead leaves, and dead growing tips, but I would wait to see where new growth appears.

If the stem has had died, you usually will find new growth at the base.

Thank you Protein, yes they sure have taken a battering, oh I loved my cordylines, I complained about them sometimes especially after a strong breeze, having to pick up the fallen leaves but where I have them placed they looked so stately and complemented the house.
