Di­vide clump­ing plants

Gardening Australia - - YOUR PLANNER -

Au­tumn is a good time to di­vide crowded clumps of aga­pan­thus (left), clivia, liri­ope, spi­der lily, di­anella and other clump­ing plants. Sharpen your spade, so you get a nice clean cut through the roots. If the soil is hard to pen­e­trate, loosen it first with a gar­den fork or give the ground a good soak­ing a cou­ple of days be­fore­hand to soften it up. Your di­vi­sions can be whatever size you like, as long as they have lots of healthy roots. Trim any ragged roots cleanly with se­ca­teurs be­fore re­plant­ing.
