So I bought several of these Japanese Hollies, thinking I could create some interesting shapes for the garden. All ten of them, however, have arrived with 'double' trunks. Simple question: Can I just cut one of these off and expect the plant to survive and flourish through the remaining trunk (i.e. become a normal tree)? Or will it try to send up suckers, become infected, fail to thrive, etc?
Thanks in advance.
