Divide perennials in the fall

More plants for less……any gardener worth the soil under their thumbnail embraces this motto. And we’re approaching the time to make your landscape pay back all the nurturing you’ve done. Fall is the time to divide mature perennials. Among some of the favorites in Miss-Lou gardens divisions are possible with Hosta, Daylilies, Iris, Rudbeckias, Coneflower, even perennial grasses and many more of the reliable show stoppers of the South. Besides adding more plants to the landscape, division produces more vigorous growth than overgrown perennials, adding bloom and health to the plant.
