    Default Dividing Helenium...?

    I have a lovely clump of helenium on my allotment, and I'd love to divide it and take half of it home.

    I know that spring is the best time to do this.

    However, I tried to do so in spring but it was far too tough to dig up or get a spade through.

    How should I be doing it?

    Or should I just propagate from seed? Is this practical?
