Cabbage palm

paulynorfpaulynorf Posts: 11
Hi all, 
we’ve had a cabbage palm in an outdoor garden box for almost a year now and it seems to be doing very well considering it’s been through this last winter outside. 
Just one question. Some of the lower branches/leaves appear to be fading and frayed so I assume they are dying. The rest of the palm appears to be very well indeed. My question is can we remove the frayed branches or should we just leave the plant alone to shed anything dead or dying itself? 
Apologies if it’s an obvious question but I’m a novice gardener and I don’t want to kill the plant!
any help as ever much appreciated. 
Best
Paul

    either cut them off as they fade, or leave them until there are enough to have a really good go at it.
    I'm in Devon and they grow like weeds down here.

    That's the most important bit of gardening " enjoying" it.
