Tom Karwin, On Gardening | Dividing perennial plants - Santa Cruz Sentinel
The plants are Queen’s Tears (Billbergia nutans), with multi-colored blossoms that can drip nectar, and Matchstick Bromeliad (Aechmea gamosepala), which displays bristles of purplish-pink bracts tipped with iridescent blue bead-like flowers. Both plants grow quite well in the Monterey Bay climate, given partial shade and regular irrigation.

Both of these plants grow to 1.5–2.0 feet high, and almost as wide. They both produce offsets (“pups”) that can be cut free from the mother plant when they are at least six inches tall. When allowed to grow longer, the pups will develop roots, making them better prepared to grow on their own.
Division of these plants can be done whenever the pups are large enough to be separated but should not be done while the plants are in bloom.
Queens’ Tears flowers in late March or early April and blooms last for six to eight weeks. The Matchstick Bromeliad flowers from May through September.
The mature plants form fairly dense clumps, so that the mother plant and offsets support each other physically. When the pups are separated and replanted, they need propping for a few weeks until they develop roots deep enough to stand without external support.
The divisions may require two or three years to mature before they produce flowers. While the gardener waits patiently for the extraordinary blooms, their attractive leaves qualify them as garden assets.
This season is a good time to study your perennial plants to reduce crowding, develop a landscape grouping, share plants with friends, or other reasons to lift and divide the plants.
Many perennial plants can be divided with the basic methods outlined above, but enough variations exist that a bit of research in advance would be helpful. That research begins by entering the plant’s botanical name plus “cultivation” in Google or another Internet search engine. A search for a popular plant might link to multiple websites, some of which will focus primarily on selling the targeted plant. In such cases, scan the sites for information on dividing the plant.
Dividing perennials can a rewarding and satisfying exercise in real gardening.

Master Gardener: Four Generations Bloom at Adeline's Peonies - Yakima Herald-Republic
This year, peonies will be picked from early-May into mid-June.Fidel Ramos was there, harvesting peonies for the McCarthys as he has for over 40 years. Moving quickly through the fields, the pickers choose buds that are just beginning to show color, and feel like a marshmallow would if you gave it a gentle squeeze. The well-orchestrated crew knows that time is of the essence, and that the cut flowers must make it into the cooler quickly. They processed 10,000 peonies that day, most of them destined for the wholesale market, largely in Western Washington.Varieties like Coral Charm, Lemon Chiffon, Paula Fay, Mons Jules Elie and Pink Hawaiian Coral are recent introductions, prized in today’s cut flower market. Brides dream of flowers like these in their wedding bouquets.Do you crave fresh flowers in your life? Are you drawn to a just-picked, fragrant blossom like a bee is to nectar? The flowers from your neighborhood florist or the grocery store are picture-perfect and lovely enough. But they were likely bred for their suitability as freight rather than for their delicacy, grace, or scent. One hundred years ago, almost all the cut flowers sold in the United States were also grown here. Now, nearly three-fourths of our flowers are imports, mostly from Colombia or Ecuador.Forget flowers grown on the other side of the world. Seasonal, local bouquets are “in.” Take a short ride to Adeline’s and find real flowers, grown and harvested by hand in rich garden soil that’s been in the same family for generations. If you take a deep breath, you can smell the peonies, even before you see them.

Summer House family farm supplies fresh-cut flowers - TribLIVE - Tribune-Review
They’re also busy professionals with two young children — Amos, 8, and Matilda, 3. Mary Beth is assistant director of the Center for Political and Economic Thought and a lecturer in politics at Saint Vincent College. Steve sells insurance and provides accounting services from his office in Murrysville.
Mary Beth grew up on the 10-acre Summer House property, and her widowed father still lives there. She says she always had a love of gardening and flowers, but never thought it would be more than a hobby.
Then she and Steve had a kind of joint epiphany about 2½ years ago.
“We had jobs, kids, a house, a nice life, but we just looked at each other and said, ‘Is this it?’” she says.
In a blog on the Summer House website, she explains, “Starting a successful business, being our own bosses, and controlling our own destiny has always been our dream (duh, isn’t it everyone’s?)” — but she was surprised when Steve took to the flower farm idea so quickly.
Gardening, she says, has always helped her deal with anxiety, especially through her pregnancies, and she also wanted to teach her children the joys of digging in the dirt, breathing fresh air and — perhaps most importantly — experiencing life firsthand instead of through the screen of an electronic device.
So, they tilled a 60-by-60-foot plot and started planting. Gradually, Mary Beth says, “we’ve added auxiliary plots all over the place.”
Starting with tulips and daffodils, they cultivate fl...
