When is the best time to divide my perennials?

Many perennials will need the rejuvenation of division every two to three years. Spring flowering perennials are best divided in the fall, while summer and fall blooming plants can be divided during the spring and summer growing season. Several signs indicate that your plants may need division: poor flowering, dying or dead centers, or just plain floppy. Of course, it’s always important to make sure that each perennial has its specific requirements of sunlight, drainage, and spacing.
