We have a lovely cycad growing in a raised bed on our front lawn, and this year it has 3 large shoots attached to the main trunk, plus it has just had a massive creamy coloured flower in the centre, and now coming out of that is 22 new very healthy fronds, and the old ones are starting to go yellow. Can I remove the shoots and place them in pots with potting mix for transplanting? And would it be ok to remove the old fronds, as this would make the plant look so much nicer? I await you reply. Regards, Malcolm.

Sounds like you have 3 pups, and yes you can remove them and propagate them.
