Hi all, can I add a question on a similar line? I was very interested to read about these bamboos looking dry and shrivelled over winter, as I was given a beautiful healthy one last year, in a pot, and while I was on holiday it blew over ( we are very exposed) and got very dried out. It has never fully recovered until I noticed a day or so ago, one or two new shoots at the base. Question is, should I thin out the huge mass of very dead looking old stems, or leave the whole lot?
