    Help! I live in the south of England and for the last five years have had a Yucca growing quite happily in mysouth facing front garden. It has developed three new offshoots at its base but recently the whole tree has started to bend. Now it has suddenly gone right over and is lying horizontal to the ground. Is my Yucca dying or does it just need to be staked to keep it upright?
    Many thanks

    Examine the base of it.. they are prone to rot there and if you have a lot of rain (you did say England?) that may be bad news. They are desert plants and unless you have them protected somehow, you might be out of luck.

    Check out the UK Oasis board - http://www.ukoasis.co.uk/
    Many knowledgeable people there.
    There are many Yucca (not "Yukka") plants grown all over the UK with much success.

    Cheers, LPN.

    Thank you for your advice. Unfortunately my tree has rotted at the base. Therefore, have removed it's "babies" and potted into containers, so fingers crossed!

    Best regards,
