Trimming Bird of Paradise

leafy added on May 11, 2011 | Answered

I have a bird of paradise that has grown too tall. It is an old, established plant. Can I safely trim it to its base? If so, how long will it take to reach the flowering stage again? If not, how to move the entire plant?

You can do this and it will survive. It is best to do this in early spring though.
