Sometimes I get lucky. Mostly I'm pretty random about how I plant things.

I had a pretty big clump of it this summer, but shared it down to just a few.

I love the phrase 'shared it down'.......
Thro' all the tumult and the strife I hear the music ringing; It finds an echo in my soul— How can I keep from singing?

Did I just coin a phrase? Hilarious! I "shared down" a lot of irises this year. Soooooo, if sharing down means you got rid of lots of them, does "Shared Up" mean you got some back???? Rolling on the floor laughing
