what do I do with new shoots on my cordyline australis

United Kingdom Gb

my cordyline australis has 2 trunks.lost one top in the winter,now has numerous shoots from the base, and some new shoots growing up the other trunk. Should I do anything with these?



no leave them alone. if theres too many nature will sort it out. i love it when they do this. it makes for a more interesting plant.

If you've got dead trunk above the new growth, I'd be inclined to prune that off back to the new growth.
