An efficient way of gardening is to plant perennials and ornamental grasses that can be divided and spread throughout your garden. This works really well if you’re on a limited budget and have a little patience. Spring is the best time to tackle this project and it’s really easy….a 6 year old could do it!
You can either completely dig up the plant to divide above ground and replant….
Or stick your shovel down at the center of the plant and pop out the size of plant you’d like to transplant. Just make sure to fill the hole back in.
Generally it doesn’t matter much where you divide the plant, how careful you are when you divide or how large you make the new plant. Once the perennial has been divided and planted, give it a good drink of water.
