Has anyone successfully severed a young yukka from the parent plant I have read up on it and it seems fairly simple but just wondered if anyone had experience it and been successful
I have a yukka with a large teenager which now overhangs my little path through, so it needs to be leaving home

Despite being fragile in frost, they do seem quite tough. I’ve experienced the other way round. Mine suffered from them beast from the East’ a few years ago. It looked dead, but I was advised to leave it. After a year a baby grew from the side low down. I then cut off the main stem.
So I’d say go for it! I’m not sure how you root it, but Mr Google will have the answer.

Thanks J52 yes I ve had a little google and it seems possible I hate the idea of purposely killing something but it really can’t stay there Sounds good that you managed to not lose one in relation to the other
