Q.Gaillardia replanting

Zone Bristol UK | Anonymous added on August 6, 2020 | Answered

I have a Gaillardia in a pot at the moment and is is doing really well. I would like at some stage to plant it in my border. When would be the best time to do it and could I split it to create other plants?
Many thanks

Yes your plants are doing well! You can divide Gaillardia in fall or spring, but since they are short-lived perennials, I would plant it now rather than wait till spring. It might not survive the winter in a pot.
