I have a Bird-of-Paradise plant
which is really very old and it is inundated with grass and weeds
. I wanted to cut it right back, weed
between the stems and allow fresh regrowth however I have found this a near impossible task! I have tried a chainsaw, handheld saw and various garden tools as well as weedkiller but absolutely nothing works! My last effort will be with a machete!
The stems are very "rubbery" and simply bend when any tool is applied to them.
Can any of you help me with some advice on this problem, please?
