So they cover the lower stem cordy?

As you can see, there is space at the top of that stem jacket thingy, can it be trimmed nearer the new growth?

Just leave it to push the its new leaves above where you have cut off last years. Then you can trim this back, mine looks the same, it will look better when the stem has dried out too.

Don't worry, the first leaf will be tatty, it's normal.
