Thank you for your help
I haven't watered it since last summer a few of the leaves on the underneath died and I've cut them back but it keeps growing this has never happened before and it's been in the same place about 15yrs every year it dies of I cut it back and I then have a amazing display the following spring/summer
Will it do it any hard of I just cut it all the way back now?

Calla lily need a dormant period before they rebloom. If temperatures aren't likely to get cold enough to induce dormancy, do it by letting the plant dry out completely. Allow the foliage to die back before trimming it off. The last part of the following article explains how to do this: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/calla-lily/make-calla-lily-bloom.htm
