|Hi there, i live in Southern Ontario and was wondering if I can divide my thrift plant by using the spade method ie. splitting it in half as you do with other perennials. My thrift plant is about 10 inches in diameter.
Also, when is the best time to divide them?

|It never hurts to divide your perennials. Dividing your perennials will help keep your plants healthy and will make more plants for future plantings. If you don't divide them every three to four years, these clumps can die out in the middle, leaving a bare hole.
Best time to divide most perennials are in spring to fall, those two seasons are best. This is because dividing your perennials can be stressful on the plantsand they'll recover better from the shock in cool, moist conditions. Good luck
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
