Well, this is the home of,the cordyline....Cornwall. They grow everywhere down here
At 4 to 6' they aren't too tall to move. Dig a generous circle around the plant .....40 cm from the trunk all round.....and 60 cm deep. Push the spade under the rootball and gently lift. It should separate well from the soil as a compact unit. I always haveeThe recipient hold prepared beforehand but don't use too much compost, manure etc.
Crdylines can be cut back hard and they will sprout with multiple shoots. I think keeping just 3 well spaced shoots makes a nice plant
