Dividing plants

The time to divide most plants is in the spring or fall. There are a few compelling reasons to do this in the fall, namely the the weather and soil temp. Fall tends to give you warm dry weather to work in where spring can be wet and cool. The soil you are transplanting into will be warmer in the fall if you start early enough and your divided plants will have a a little time to get established before the winter cold sets in.

If you have priced day lilies or hosta at a nursery lately you know that the time spent dividing your own plants is well worth it. For the original post click HERE.
