Cut back main stem of curry leaf plant?

I've had a curry leaf plant for a number of years, and it's getting too big for the space I keep it in over the winter (Minnesota). I don't want to keep moving it into bigger and bigger pots either. I'm trying to propagate from semi-hard stem cuttings, not sure if it's going to work. Meanwhile, I'm wondering, given that there are four or five suckers coming up around the bottom, if I can cut off the main trunk without killing the whole thing. I wouldn't do this until later in the summer (unless advised to by you folks), or whenever my cuttings root (crossing my fingers on that).

Thanks for your input!
