Don't worry about the photo being upside down ... there's a glitch on the forum and that sometimes happens to all of us.
I don't think I'd do much to the tree other than take out any branches that are crossing and rubbing on each other .... cut them back close to but not quite flush with the trunk.
Otherwise I'd leave it alone ... 'tidying' it could result in a sort of 'lollipop effect' which would look unnatural and a bit odd.
Just make sure that the ties around the trunk and stake are loosened regularly and not rubbing on the bark.
You have a lovely garden
