I have several varieties of ornamental grasses in my yard. When is the best time to dig up the plants and divide them?

Early spring is a good time to dig and divide clumps of ornamental grasses. Gently lift the clump and pry apart the crown. One technique is to use 2 garden forks back-to-back to carefully divide the root ball into sections. (Be sure to leave some foliage with each root division.) Replant the sections immediately and water well.
