    Thank you for your help. I hadn't realized just what a potential future problem when enjoying it's flowering period. It's a hidden time bomb waiting to explode. Have now treated all the roots that are rapidly appearing with "Roundup weedkiller gel" . (Glyphosate 7.2g/l).

    Thanks- it was early March so I do believe it was dormant. Should it be budding by now? There are slight bumps on the stems but no buds...

    Was the plant dormant when you "stooled" it? If it had already leafed out when you pruned it, then yes, you may have killed it. Go ahead and cut the fattest branches down as far as you can to get more light into the center. Cut back one of the smaller branches. If the inside or pith is tan, it is gone. If there is a thin green ring just under the bark, it's alive.
