Splitting Crocus clumps

BiljeBilje Posts: 790

I have two beds in which I grow Hostas, they are under planted with snowdrops and Specie crocus. Currently they look lovely and the hosta noses are just showing. I know what to do with snowdrops i.e. moving in the green but what about splitting the now large clumps of crocus. Do I move them as the flowers go over or mark the clumps and attempt to find them under the Hostas as dormant bulbs in the Autumn. 

All thoughts welcome.

    I'd feed them if you do that sort of thing then move them as they're dying back

    Thanks, yes I do feed my bulbs, good old Tomato fertiliser. The ones in the ground get a couple of feeds but I also grow bulbs in pots and find if I feed regularly especially tulips I get good results the Next year. Thanks for the replies
