Have you noticed your Iris or Black-Eyed Susan looking a little pale or your prize Chrysanthemum beginning to outgrow its space? Is your Daylily, Peony, Primrose, Poppy or Aster dying out in the center? If so, fall is the right time to divide and replant these or other spring and summer blooming plants that grow back year after year.
Dividing perennials that are established during autumn months is the easiest and quickest way to make them healthier – while gaining new plants for your garden or for sharing with your neighbors. The best candidates for division are perennial plants that have large, healthy clumps and have been in the ground several years.
Try to divide dormant perennials on a cloudy day when the weather is dry, making sure each plant division has more roots than shoots.
