I have had a cordeline plant in my garden for many many years, unfortunately this years bad weather has made the leaves turn yellow, I cut them with a pair of sharp shears, but now it has gone all mushy at the top. Although there are quite a few strong shoots further down the plant. Shall I cut it down to the shoots which are about a foot down from the top.



Yes cut back to the growing shoots.

Agree with Moongrower's advice, but would add angle the cut to enable rain to run off if at all possible.
