Oftentimes, a garden will become dense with plants that have grown into clumps and do not spread the way they used to. This is because many plants will not propagate great distances on their own. One way to thin out areas of the garden as well as spread plants further than they would naturally is through dividing and transplanting them. When dividing and transplanting daylilies, there are some basic steps to follow.
First of all, the plant should be very dense and not thriving any more. When this is the case, dig up the plant ensuring that as little root damage is done as possible. When the plant has been removed from the ground, any excess soil should be gently removed. Next, using a sharp knife, the plants should be cut into equal sizes, ensuring that each plant has a sufficient root system.
