need help dividing
I've got a clump of Zebra Grass that I have never divided. The clump is 2ft across. The foliage has been fine (although by the end of the season it does get blown over by high winds), but it's getting a bit large for the location.
I took the plunge today, digging all the way around with a shovel, spade, and machete. I can't quite get all the way under, and haven't been able to get the clump out. Other than a pry bar (which I don't have), I can't think of how to get it out.
Since I can't get it out, would it be OK to try to cut it into pieces and dig out the smaller clumps? I was thinking I would use the spade....machete...maybe a pruning saw to cut it up? Either way, how many pieces should I divide this plant into?
thanks for the help,
