How to di­vide day lilies in pots

Amateur Gardening - - Your Gardening Week -

1 De­cant the plant from the con­tainer and re­move any weeds or moss from the sur­face of the com­post. Cut off any old flower stems and dam­aged fo­liage. 2 Di­vide root balls into the re­quired amount of sec­tions. If you can­not tease the roots apart by hand, use an old bread knife to slice through them. 3 Pot sec­tions into con­tain­ers large enough to ac­com­mo­date the root sys­tems. Use a mix­ture of multi-pur­pose com­post and John Innes com­post.
