October is a fine time to dig and divide clumps of perennials that are so old they fail to bloom like they should. Lift the plant with a fork, wash it off to see the stem and root structure, then divide perennials at the natural points with a sharp knife. Soften the soil at the new planting locations with Black Gold Garden Compost Blend to make it easier for the divisions to strike new roots for bountiful displays come spring.
Rich in organics, Black Gold® Garden Compost Blend is a quality amendment that will fortify any garden. Not only will it build soil health and structure, but gardeners can be assured plants will be supplied with needed fertility for top performance.
