Default Moving Large Corms

So I've got some Musa Basjoo that I want to dig up and move. Should I chop them down to make it easier?

Your choice.

The plant will be stressed by severing and disturbing the roots any way you plan to do move them.

So you may cut the stem about half way up or take out a giant heavy rootball.

Small plants I will get the largest root ball I can without disturbing the roots.

Basjoos are very forgiving choose what is easiest for you,

Here is some inspiration from another forum member...BigDog
