Reviving an Echium.

A plant bought in March died in the greenhouse due to the cold spell.  However, new shoots have appeared at the base of the stem.  How much of the dead part should I cut back?

    All of it I would say. New shoots from the base is perfect.p

    Thanks Lyn. 

    P.S. I think my great grandfather was from Mary Tavy near you.
