The Q&A Archives: Dividing Shasta Daisies

Question: I have Shasta daisies which have been growing well for about 3 years. They are now in a very "Big" clump. How and when do I divide them? Luanne Payne Memphis, TN

Answer: Shasta daisies may be divided in the fall after they have finished flowering. To divide, simply slice through the big clump with a shovel, and remove one or more sections. Fill the void around the original plant with good topsoil or well rotted compost. Plant the divisions in a well drained, sunny area where you have amended the soil, again, with well rotted compost or good, clean topsoil. ( Or, give them away to your daisy-less friends!)
