Noooo Pilkington, it will die, at best you should dig it out roots and all,replant, keep watered for a week or so, then keep your fingers crossed :)

I 'pruned' a Cordeline a few yaers ago becuase it was getting large and out of control - it died and I got a row!!

I dug up and transplanted a wee side shoot...and it is looking very sorry for itself.....I should have just bought a new one!!!
