Spring Splitting and Roguing at 5th Leaf
- If there is one very large shoot and the twin or triplets are small – I prefer to remove and discard the twin without disturbing the roots of the larger plant. This will optimise my bulb size.
- If the twins or triplets are all the same size – I remove the full set, separate and replant in the space created by roguing.
Decide if you want to replant all or simply remove a small side twin but leave the larger plant’s root in place. The two techniques shown in the photos are what I do when I’ve decided to sacrifice a small twin or lift, separate and replant.
