Plant division is a technique for growing new plants by dividing a parent plant into sections, each of which has its own set of roots. Below are the benefits of dividing plants:
Your plants will begin to compete with one another for water and nutrients if they become too big. Large plants also have limited ventilation, which increases the risk of illnesses that might destroy your plants.
Some plants tend to spread quickly out of control, and you don't want one plant to take over a whole garden bed. Plant division controls the growth rate.
It's simple and affordable to increase the number of plants in other garden beds when you divide them. You can quickly fill a new bed with plants if you add a few divisions from other plants.
