Dierama dilemma

Amateur Gardening - - Pick Of The Very Best -

QI have a large clump of dierama with old fo­liage at its base. Could I lift it and re­plant?

Mrs P Bayes, Nor­wich, Nor­folk

ADo noth­ing to your dierama un­til spring when, if it is large enough, split it into well-rooted sec­tions and re­plant them in a sunny spot with fer­tile soil. This is also the best time to re­move any dead leaves.

En­cour­age the off­sets to flour­ish by feed­ing them monthly, from April to Sep­tem­ber, with fish, blood and bone meal.

Dierama should be lifted and di­vided in spring
