Crinum Division

Sally from VA posted a great question regarding when to divide her crinum!

“I’d like to divide a crinum bulb that’s been in the ground for 5 years. May I do it in March, as the spring in virginia begins? Or, should I do it now, in January?”

“Thank you for your inquiry! Now would be an ideal time to divide your crinum unless you’re worried about exposing them to freezes. If the weather is going to zap them with below 30 degree temperatures or harder, wait until hard freeze danger is over. (or protect them after dividing) You’ll lose a little head start of spring growth, but all will be fine in the end with these aggressive summer growers.”

Happy Gardening!
