    I would get some bamboo bean canes and something soft to use as ties and support the branches temporarily until the flowers are over.  

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

    Laburnums are somewhat tempremental trees and seriously dislike being heavily pruned and are rather susceptible to damageat an early age

    Agreed with DoveFromAbove. It needs staking because if the main trunk snaps, it will most probably be game-over for your tree.
