Dividing calla lilies article

Zone Zone 6b. | Anonymous added on May 15, 2019 | Answered

My first time doing this. I have some first year clumps that I dusted and stored. Potted several weeks ago in 12" pots and now have 3 pots with half a dozen 1"-6" very determined looking sprouts. Intent is to plant out. Should I transplant as is, i.e. remove full pot and plant as a unit? Or should I attempt to divide? Thanks. ps. Enjoyed the article. Just wasn't sure how or if it could be applied to Spring bulbs that have already sprouted. Post the response if you think it might help others.

If you would like to divide, then you still only have a short window to do so. You can leave them as is, and this is what I would recommend, until next time you replant after dormancy. These will like to be split up right before the growing season starts, but they will still respond now, should you choose to divide them now.
