I have a chinese elm which I love and cherish, but I'm no expert on shaping and pruning. To my heartbreak, my son got hold of my shears and took off a branch and the tree has lost its balance. After a few tears, I put the branch in some soil and perlite in the hope it might root. I don't know what I should do with the tree. Should I take out the opposite branch? It will be more balanced but it will be top heavy. Or should I wait and see if the stub gets shoots? I live in England and keep the tree indoors most of the time. I'll try and put some pictures up of before and after.
