Splitting perennials

Matty2Matty2 Posts: 4,820

I have just bought 2 largish perennials a geranium Samobor and a pulmonaria. Could I split them now when they are showing very little growth or should I wait until they have more leaf?

I aim to have maybe 3 plants from each

    I would grow them on a bit first so you can see natural divisionsimage

    Don't know about pulmonarias but its fine to split the geranium now.  I do mine at this time of year and they've all grown away happily.

    I split mine now , they find own shape then in a pot/ground.

    I've grown Samabor before but never propagated it but in this garden I need more than one to make an impact and it seemed the cheapest way to do it.  The same with the pulmonaria. maybe wait a couple of weeks or so would be best?

    You will not lose anything if you wait.
