My Cordyline which died because of the bad snow last year has re-sprouted from below the soil. Instead of one new re-growth, I have three. Should I dig two of them up and re-plant them elsewhere as the three are in very close proximity to the other. Also my Mahonia and phormium have re-sprouted again after being damaged by the snow.

Cordyline that has resprouted can have excess shoots cut away, or left, as preferred. They cannot be dug up as they are sprouted from the main stem.

For mahonia and phormium, cut away any remaining dead foliage or stems.
