Give the gift of perennials

Don't waste your money on that lovely bunch of flowers or that over-priced potted plant. Instead look at the plants in your garden. What do you have that you can divide and re-pot? Flowers that grow from bulbs, such as daffodils and tulips are easy to divide.  After they have flowered, gently lift them from the garden and pull off the small bulbs that  have formed around the original bulb.  Re-plant these in a suitable pot filled with a good potting mix and you have a beautiful gift that will keep on giving.
