Se­dum split­ting

Amateur Gardening - - Ask Anne! -

Q When should I di­vide my lovely pink-flow­ered se­dum? Ian Grose, Minch­in­hamp­ton, Glocs

A Se­dums are very easy to di­vide. The best time to lift your plant is spring, just as it is com­ing into growth. Lift the whole plant with a fork, tak­ing care not to dam­age the roots more than nec­es­sary, or the fleshy leaves.

Shake as much soil from the roots as pos­si­ble then pull the plant into pieces, each with a root­ball the size of a large hand. Dis­card any woody growth from the cen­tre of the plant.

Plant each piece to the same depth it was be­fore and wa­ter in if the soil is dry.
