Watch as Better Homes and Gardens shows you how to divide daylilies! To dig up a daylily clump, take a garden spade with a nice sharp blade. Stick it into the ground around the perimeter of the plant. Get as much of the root ball as possible. Use your spade as a lever, and pop the root ball out of the ground. To divide daylilies, cut a large clump in half. Set the clumps in a wheelbarrow. Separate each clump into several small plants with a sharp garden knife. Place one division back in the hole, and shovel soil into the hole. Spread mulch around the plant, and water the plant. Dividing daylilies can improve the look of your garden and keep your plants healthy!
