I have a Heuchera "plum pudding" and wondered how you are supposed to divide the plant please? I am an amateur gardener and have not yet caried out this task and am worried about killing the plant. I would appreciate any advice please.
I adore the fragile pink flowers of this plant! Sorry I can't help on the dividing, as I don't know myself!
They are ready for dividing when the fleshy part of the root is at soil level. Dig out carefully keeping roots intact and enduring there is as leaf / New shoot at the end. Cut about 2in from main plant and replant covering all but the leaf. Plant horizontally.
