Q.I Have a Sago That Has Grown Way Too Big for the Area

cteaston added on March 6, 2011 | Answered

I have an overgrown sago that I’m not really keen on digging up and transplanting it. Can I cut it off at the base? I realize it would probably have more than one crown, but would it kill it? It’s a foundation plant at my entryway.  I just scrolled down and found my answer, sorry. I guess the answer is that it would probably kill it.

Yes, it would kill it. If it is overgrown, it may be best to remove it and start over with a smaller specimen.
