The Q&A Archives: Dividing Bulbs and Tuburs

Question: When do I divide overgrown bulbs and tuburs?

Answer: Wait until after the foliage has died down on its own before digging and dividing your plants. If you cut off the foliage prematurely the bulbs will not have enough stored energy to grow and flower for you next year. Wait until the leaves are brown and you'll have the best results.
