0509DP Dividing Perennials

Tuesday, May 9

6-8 pm

Early spring is an ideal time to divide and/or move the majority of perennials, just before they take off with new growth after winter dormancy. Most perennials move fairly easily – and you can get away with a lot in spring when the temperatures are cool and there is plenty of natural moisture in the soil. Some perennials are problematic; you need to be able identify them and know how to handle them. Instructor Christine Froehlich has been moving plants around for years in her own gardens and on the properties she maintains. Join her in the gardens at Warner Castle to learn how to divide both easy and tricky perennials, how to get the job done easily and quickly using the proper tools, where to relocate divisions, and how to replant them.

This class is a component of the Plant Propagation Certificate, but may be taken individually if space allows.
