Dividing new plants straight from the nursery
I've just purchased a couple of Crocosmia from my local nursery, both are in 1L pots, seemingly freshly shipped from Holland.
As I've been busily splitting lots of the herbaceous perennials already in my garden it got me wondering - is it wise or decidedly daft to try and split these newly purchased plants to increase my stock?
I wasn't sure whether this would encourage lots of vigorous new growth or if the stress of likely already having been split off a larger plant to put in pots for sale the plants would already have undergone some stress and would want to have a year or two to recover before being split.
Any thoughts from those more experienced than me greatly appreciated.
