Dicksonia antarctica trouble

Does anyone know what on earth's up with my Dicksonia antarctica? It's oozing this brownish/orangeish jelly like stuff, at first in perfectly round balls the size of a small pea and now also in streaks of the stuff. It was lovingly wrapped up for winter in fleece with straw and last year's fronds protecting the crown. I uncovered it about three weeks ago (I live in Kent) and there was no sign of it then. There are no nasty grubs in the jelly, by the way.

Any advice gratefully received.
