Need some advice-Scotch Broom
Yesterday's storms that blew through Maryland did quite a number on my Scotch Broom. It seems to have parted the shrub in the middle and it is now splayed in front of my gate. It doesn't seem to be damaged other than the branches are now severely arced. It was in need of pruning back this year and we were going to cut it back after it finished blooming. Right now it stands about five foot tall...that is when it is standing.
Should I tie it up around the middle to hold it upright? I need help. My husband is ready to dig it out but it is doing so well where it is. It has been there for a few years so it is well established. We just can't get through the gate now.
