Dividing Bulbs

In Florida, early fall is a good time to divide bulbs. Plants that develop these underground reproductive units, such as amaryllis, hyacinth, and narcissus develop "baby" bulbs, which, when grown to full size, are known as offsets. To divide bulbs, simply separate these offsets and replant them to create new plants.
