Dividing Daylilies - Knowledgebase Question

Question by sissyq
August 6, 1998
I am cultivating a garden which has been neglected and overgrown for about thirty years. I dug up a big bed of daylillies which were doing poorly to divide them and refurbish the soil with peat moss and manure (only four out of about 40 bloomed this year!) My question is, short of teasing the clumps apart, am I supposed to actually cut each clump into sections, or just replant the naturally occuring bulb/root clumps, you know how they look like little octopi ? Help! I have never done this before.
