we had a terrible freeze and all of my fronds died. They were removed and now I have beautiful new shoots BUT in 3 separate places. This seems very odd. What should I do if anything?

Usually I do not recommend cutting fronds until there is new growth established already to replace them. Since it is shooting new replacement pups, it is best to let the parent die off. After it has almost completely shriveled, you can pull apart the pups or leave them to replace the lost sago.
