There is an old forsythia in our shared garden, and it has turned into a small tree, with diseased growths. I would like to rejuvenate it over a few years, so I cut back about a third of the branches last year. There is new growth but I'm not sure if it is from the rootstock. Please can anyone advise? Thank you.

Are forsythia usually grafted plants? I have one that got cut right to the ground 14 years ago and has come back as a proper forsythia. Have a look at the bark on the new growth to see if it looks like forsythia - it's a quite distinctive pattern.
