Last year i had an established plant and a new champagne type I let them both rot down and didnt remove anything they both survived ok. This year the established plant did quite thenew one well it increased 3 times the size of before, I didnt pull any stems off it this year to make it even stronger i already put a load of stable manure round them both. The leaves turned red on the champagne one, a sign that chorofil is leaving? And I decided to leave the red stemmed one alone now, am I'm right?
