Bleeding hearts getting too big, when/how to divide?
I have a shade garden underneath two 70 year old locust trees in our back yard. I started this garden about three years ago, with just a couple plants. I had these at our old house and they never grew to this sizeAnyway, these bleeding hearts (pink) have now spread so much that they are taking over. They are close to 4ft. tall and 5ft. wide and really healthy. How and when to divide these?
The same thing is happening with the hosta that I planted that were just pint pots that went in at the same time. Now they are HUGE. I do mulch the bed every spring and that is about it.
