Best time to dig up and separate amaryllis?
My amaryllis are cramped like heck. I keep reading that fall is the best time but I'm not sure exactly when. Is it when the weather is cool while the leaves are still intact? Is it after the leaves die down when you do it?
And what do I do if it's all rooted together? Some of my amaryllis grew in big pots before I decided to stick them in the ground to spread out. Some of them are jammed together pretty good.
I guess I'm asking because I've had a few buds that seemed to have gotten stopped short in the middle of the amaryllis batches and I'm assuming it was because they're crammed together pretty good.
