I've lifted and divided my Crocosmia Lucifer corms - this lot weighed a ton trying to lift them out of the ground 😳🏋🏽. I've split in half and moved some to another part of the garden (full sun).

@tiggrx I almost put it off another year, but I had to move them anyway as they had effected by the shade caused by a tree that's got a bit big recently. So thought I'd split them too.

I would like to move mine too but suspect it would still appear in the original spot.

We are due heavy rain tomorrow afternoon into evening another hurricane tail end ! I don't cut my crocosmia down as the frogs and other ground insects live in it over winter but I thin it out in spring and it does ok😁

I blame it on growing in partial shade. The sun is part blocked out by our laburnum tree, so will move it at the end if year to a better position.
