We have a cordyline, although not expecting the growth it has achieved, it has looked quite something. Some years ago it branched out with 3 branches, which in turn have produced a wonderful 'head' of leaves. Unfortunately due the the winters terrible frost 2 of the original branches has appeared to have rotted away. In the recent dry and warm weather the trunk is developing a abundance of shoots. Is it lost or beyond help, really would not like to lose it. Can we cut the rotting branches off and would it save it



Hi, we also have cordylines and lost 2 of them over the last winter, we also had 2 rotting stumps left,we cut down the main rotted stump and new shoots are now springing up everywhere ,It will just carry on as before.
