At the beginning of the year,I posted a photo of a very sad Torquay Palm,that was destroyed by the harsh frosts and we were advised to cut back all the soft,rotten trunks. Thought might like to see how we disguised it thru the summer. Much to our delight,you may be able to see it is starting to regenerate itself from the bottom. My question is do we leave the stumps or cut them down to ground level,if we cut them back will it send the new shoots into shock?? Regards Carole




Very attractive. As for the new shoots, no it won't shock them if you cut all the dead trunks down, they're dead anyway.
