Dividing perennials, such as daylilies, peonies and hostas is a good way to expand your garden with plants you already have. Flowers that have grown into big clumps can take command and compete with others for nutrients in the soil. When dividing perennials you’re benefiting your garden in many ways including keeping the garden tidy, encouraging plants to bloom and spreading your plants to put elsewhere.
Why should you divide perennials?
Perennials can outgrow their spaces or crowd neighboring plants in a bed.
