    I’ve had this palm for about 18 months and it’s looking increasingly unwell. The fronds closer to the centre are turning yellow and the new growth has come through completely brown and dead looking. Does anyone have any suggestions to revive this or is it a lost cause? Thanks in advance

    Looks like Trachycarpus?
    Think it might have had water lodge in the centre of the plant which then froze killing off the growing point.
    Give it a month or more, and see if you get any new green growth pushing up from the centre.

    If it does, then either a repot into something a lot bigger, or plant out into the ground.

        Thanks for the replies. @JWK its been like this since last autumn. I don’t think it’s had any new green growth since we got it.

        @pete yes I think it’s a trachycarpus fortunei

        If that is the case, the growing point was probably dead when you bought it.

          Well if you have had it all last summer and it didn't grow any new leaves I think it might be just slowly dying.
