That's a worry Tracey
I'd give it a good haircut, it will stimulate new growth
I'd agree with Verdun. Sounds a likely explanation.
I might have muntjac babies.
I'm hoping for a quieter night tonight, barking muntjacs kept waking me up last night. The garden's full of little trotty hoof prints and skid marks.
I really can't imagine what they were doing
They won't if you've taken it all off. Bark is where the action is with trees
I missed the bit about taking the bark off, obelixx is right, don't do that. it doesn't matter where you put them, willows root.
Nut's method (that's me)
Leave the stems in water and after a couple of weeks little white lumps appear which are baby roots. Fascinating to watch, if you've got kids it's educational. Best size is from about pencil size up to index finger size.
Yes, leave them in water, they'll root and you can watch them
Not sure the leaf shape is right for Nadina. Wonder if it might be a Leucothoe.
I don't grow either so I can't go and check.
The other maybe Centaurea montana,
