The perennial Heuchera 'Plum Pudding' is grown mainly for its leaves, whose pewter grey surfaces are suffused with undercurrents of deep purple. Delicate sprays of pinkish flowers appear in summer. Heucheras look specially good used around the edge of a border or grown in swathes with gold or silver variegated plants.

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.
