Please help if you can. My A.palmatum 'Kinshi', grown in a large pot, suffered a watering disaster during last year's French drought. The drought is over (oh boy! that's an understatement!), but my tree is in a very poor way. I thought it was stone dead, but spring has brought strong shoots of growth at the tips of a couple of the higher branches and from the trunk just above the graft. My tree clearly wants to live, but what can I do to help it? Cut back 'dead' branches to the trunk, or leave them to see if any more growth appears? Re-pot? Feed? Anything else I can do to stimulate re-growth? (I realise a decent shape may be a while in coming.) Sun? Shade? All advice gratefully received - thank you!
