Hi I’m Dave Epstein this is Growing Wisdom and today we’re going to talk about taking a grass plant and cutting it in half and giving you a second one. It’s a bonus for free. I already started to do this, I have one area where there is a hole but I want to do is take the grass plant that’s next to it, remove it, cut it and put both pieces back. That would give me two of the same grass plants right in front of this great little barricaded pine. So the first thing we’ve got to do is get that first plant out. So very carefully, we take the shovel and we dig around the perimeter of the plant. When I’m digging, I like to be a few inches away from the outer edge of the plant, that way I’m guaranteed to get most of the roots. You just kind of go around and continue to dig, and as you’re digging, I’m taking the shovel and I’m angling underneath, so it’s almost a dig down and then go towards the plant and we’re popping this out of the hole. Look how easy that was. Now once it’s out, very simply, we want take the saw and I know this seems a little bit scary, and literally cut down the middle of the plant from the top down. Don’t do it from the root up, it’s just harder, the soil is going to get all over the place. So from the top down, we cut it and look how beautifully that cuts. There’s our two plants, we’re going to replant them back in the two holes, we’ll put a little bit of extra soil around there. If you want to give al little bit of organic fertilizer at this point, you can; I would not get it near the roots, water it in if you need to, I’ve got some rain coming so we’re not going to do that and then it will grow and be very happy all summer long and you wont even know that you did this, so how about that? Here we had one plant. You dint have to spend the money for a second one, and now you got two plants of the same variety and it’s going to look great in front of this area. You could’ve cut this into four pieces if you wanted to. It just would’ve taken a little bit longer for that plant to get to that nice look that you want. For Growing Wisdom, I’m Dave Epstein.
