This is our first year overwintering the Basjoo and overnight, we have one coming up again. We removed the protective mulch last week. Is the tip of this one damaged or is this normal for this time of year? Needless to say, we are so glad to see it coming back, really liked this beauty last year. We planted it originally in the garden until we could get a permanent location ready this year.

Any suggestions at this point would be much appreciated. Thanks, Peg

I am trying to remember.This is my second year wintering over.Will not remove protected mulch for a least another month here in zone 5.If memory serves,I cut the tip off,I new stem grew out of the old stem.It was smaller in diameter.It got taller and wider(the stem) and eventually replaced the former stem.I don't know if you need to prune it or not.I am saying,I did.It is a beautiful,tough plant.Edge

start hitting it with fert now and make sure that it gets enough water and that will help them grow faster.
