    My Wollemi Pine looked completely dead a month ago but now has new shoots emerging from the bottom 6".
    It has been planted outside for two winters and was fine the first winter.
    Should I cut off most of the plant or just leave it?
    Any other advice?
    Thanks

    Leave it for another month to see if there is any further new growth higher up. Then prune off the dead top.

    I planted my Wollemi 3 years ago & it grew to about 2 feet tall last summer.
    Last winter it was killed back except very near the ground but is sprouting around the base.

    Hardyplants, i have a few questions

    what zone are you located in?

    what was the coldiest it got last winter?

    do you have winter wind and was the tree in it?

    how big is your tree?

    I just bought three of these and I want to know more about what i need to do with them.
