LIFT AND DIVIDE Here’s how
It’s easy to propagate clumping plants – lift, divide and transplant or pot up.
Gather your supplies
• Garden fork
• Sharp knife
• Potting mix
• Plant pot
STEP 1 Lift clump from ground using a garden fork or remove from pot. Use a sharp knife to cut clump into divisions.
STEP 2 Put potting mix in base of pot, position division and fill with mix, firming it down gently. Or dig a planting hole and backfill with soil improved with cow manure and compost.
STEP 3 Water in well. Put pot in full sun or part shade, depending on the plant.
