it should help next year. You should do this again in August.

division should have no more than 5 or 6 'eye' (pink buds) visible.
After it is dug and divided, fortify the old site- add a cup of bone meal
and a good handful of 12-12-12. Mix in some compost, some manure, some
sand etc depending on your soil condition. Mix well and replant at the
Next year at least some of these divisions should bloom, but if not, it
