Dying Cornish Palm

Posted by Julie Tucker , Jun 19,2006,13:03       Forum

I live in Cornwall and have a Cornish Palm planted in my garden, which I inherited 3yrs ago when I bought the house. It has been healthy until recently, but now most leaves have turned brown and fallen off - the remaining leaves are yellowing and very droopy. My cat has been using it as a scratching post, and I am concerned that the bark damage is killing it. Is there anything I can do (apart from shielding it from further damage) to revive it?
