Q.Can I Revive The Stems On A Frost Damaged Dracaena?

Zone Nottingham, UK | Peter Graham added on July 21, 2021 | Answered

I have two plants that did not do well in the snow last winter but have now burst back into life. Dracaena I think. All the foliage on the stems died but new shoots have appeared at the bottom. Is there any way I can get foliage to grow from the old stems or how do I shape the new growth into stems please? or is a case of cutting away the old stems and growing two bushes? Grateful for any tips.

These two look like they will be able to be saved! Just cut away the old stem, since it is likely dead. New growth will take over, and will likely result in a bushier plant.
