Our potted Phormium is looking sad and brown, possibly as a result of a very hard winter. I’m sure its pot is large enough. Should I cut it right down, or prune the brown leaves (most of them are brown), or do you think it might have died?

Many phormiums have been killed but others have survived. Cut away the withered leaves and wait a few weeks.

If there is then no sign of new growth, you will have to replace it.
