When to split geraniums...

Sorry if this has already been covered...

Just a quick query, I have lots of lovely Rozanne in pots. They've been in for a couple of years now, and I'd like to split them. Is it best to do it now as they become dormant, or wait till I see new growth in spring? Many thanks.

    If I can latch on to this, how does one do it?  'Management' has a couple of pots full that she'd like to split and I haven't a clue.

    Geraniums can really be split anytime, even in summer if you can keep them in suitable conditions.
    Just tip out the pots and pull apart, or use a knife or similar to divide into viable pieces. Pot up, cut back, water, and leave them somewhere out of full sun etc.

    An old bread knife is the perfect tool to use as @Fairygirl describes ✅
