Cutting back a yucca

United Kingdom Gb

I have a large Yucca plant in my garden with lots of new shoots coming off it. How do I cut the plant back evenly and can I replant the shhots.




Wow! what a magnificent yucca..... I must admit that I would simply enjoy it in all its glory. However, I can see that it may present a ‘light’ problem being located in front of two windows.

I have quickly referred to this plant in one of my books...... it states that pruning is not necessary, but that doesn’t solve your particular problem. It also suggests propagation by means of removing the rooted offsets growing at the base in spring.

I can only say, lucky you! I’d love it in my garden. Marion
