These extra leaves/branches emerging from the old trunk are very beautiful and exciting. Wonderful sense of new life. But I imagine it will end up looking a bit odd - splayed bush rather than tree shaped. Will you leave it to grow or will it have to come out some time?


Yes, I can see that this is becoming a shrub but that's not necessarily a disaster. If we can leave it in, I think we will. The alternative would be to take one of the lower shoots and encourage a trunk to form, I guess, but I fear that would be rather unstable.
