Can I split a 3/4 year old perennial stock now or should I wait until the spring? Bit nervous about losing it. I live in east yorkshire about 8 miles from the coast.Thanks



I did this time last year Lynne,always found it the safest period to separate while roots are dormant & tolerant to being handled. Given your location,bed in well in a sheltered site though to give them a good chance as cold snap not far off.
