One of the simplest ways to gain more plants in your garden is to divide your existing plants. Trade with friends and other gardeners and watch your garden diversity multiply. In this workshop, you will learn how to dig and divide perennial plants, which plants should be divided in fall and the benefits of this routine maintenance. Work with Master Gardeners to gain hands-on experience and learn proper techniques on dividing perennials. Go home with a small division to keep for your garden. Please bring a pair of garden gloves.
