When planting multi-stem birch trees it is a good idea to support the young stems with a cane.
If you purchase a bare-root Snow Queen (not a container-grown one) you can also encourage it to become multi-stemmed by topping it at around 40cm - 50cm from the ground - this will encourage the tree to send out new shoots from near the bottom of the stem. In the second year after doing this select 3-5 of the strongest shoots to grow on, and remove the rest.
