How to reduce a large Phormium?!
I have a large Phormium (N.Z Flax) whcih needs reducing. It is against a fence on one side, so not easy to get at and it is 5 ft wide and about 8 ft high. Do I chip away at the circumference or attempt to dig it up? How deep are the roots?? Any ideas as to how to do this without breaking the plant (or my back) would be much appreciated, thanks.
