Silver ferns

Am having a few issues with a silver fern. It started to grow back after winter but has now wilted down again and am not seeing new shoots (not shoots, what are they called?!) Have watered it well and is in a shady spot. Any tips welcome, thanks.

    Hi Alex,

    The new shoots of ferns are called croziers.

    When you say 'Silver Fern', do you meanΒ Cyathea dealbata?

    If so, was it exposed to those couple of hard frosts that we had a few weeks back?
