    Wow Anna, what a display! I have been to the gardens in Tanglewood and loved them so much. Especially that iron gate/arbor at the entrance by the big house. I have a big specimen of coreopsis redswitch in a big pot that I need to divided and plant in the ground. Can you give me any tips about when to do it? Right now it is all dead on top and I have never divided one before. Any help will be greatly appreciated. 🙂

    I think it’s one of the easiest plants to divide. When it starts coming up in the Spring, I stick my shovel down at a point that will remove quite a few roots with a scoop full. A shovel full is all you need to start another bunch. Don’t wait till it gets too big. If we are expecting a frost after you have moved it—then go out and cover the newly divided ones. I use Plant Tone in the soil mixture for the transplant. It’s like giving them a vitamin. It’s a once a year application.

    I remember you have been to Tanglewood. We bike, walk, or go over there to swim. Every week we’re over there in some form or fashion. I love how pretty it is and never crowded.

    What a lovely colour that is, especially against the white.
    I thought so too. When I first came upon them blooming together like that—it nearly took my breath away.
