Is there anywhere that shows the correct way to cutting violets to seperate over growth without hurting the splittings?

Violets are rather hardy plants and are fairly easy to separate. Their roots are bulbous and all you'll need to do is dig a clump of violets up and cut the clump into sections, making sure each section has a little bulb with some foliage attached. It's hard to explain but once you've dug the clump you'll be able to see all the little bulblets attached in a cluster. Just cut or pull the clump apart, making sure each division has both roots and stems. Replant, water well, and your new little plants should take right off. Enjoy!
