First, use a shovel or trowel to dig up the lilies with. Then, with your hands, split the tubers. Be sure not to damage the roots while doing this as it may cause a failed transplant. For optimal results, transplant in the fall.

To divide and transplant, dig up the lilies with a shovel or trowel. Carefully split the tubers with your hands while being aware not to damage the roots. Damaged roots may cause an unsecessful transplant. It is best to transplant during the fall or before new growth appears on the plant.

The fall is the best time to do it. Gently dig up the entire clump with a trowel or spade and using your hands, slowly and carefully pull the long tubers apart. Try not to damage to much of the root system. Once they are separated, simply replant the lilies.

You may dig the bulbs up and separate them every 3 or 4 years. Transplant in the fall after they have gone dormant, or spring before the new shoots appear.

In September dig lily up. Loosen soil leaving lots of room around plant in order not to harm roots. Replant bulbs at least six inches apart.

Once your plant goes dormant, which is usually around September, dig you lilies up. Pull the smaller bulbs carefully from the larger ones and replant immediately.
