I have cut down four stems of my frost damaged yucca and I would like to keep one straight stem of about one metre and remove the last damaged one which is still standing. The plant is about twenty years old and has about twenty new shoots. My question is, should I rub off all the lower shoots before they become too large? I live 500 metres from the sea at Herne Bay Kent.
Hope you can advise. Wendy.
