fixing snow damage

ali-t Posts: 3,815 Forumite
After enquiring on this board in the summer I bought some plants for in pots in the my front garden and they look(ed) fab.

Not being very garden minded I don't remember what they are called but one is a wee lollypop tree, I think it may be a conifer and I spent the Autumn trimming it to keep its lovely lollypop shape. We have just had nearly 2 months of snow and although I was going out and shaking it off it now has a flat top and doesn't look anything like a lollypop.

Can it be fixed? Will it sort itself in the better weather or does it need support and how?

    I'm sure it will be fine. It may need some more shaping over the summer, but as long as the main stem is intact, it should recover.
    A photo always helps.
