I have an everlasting sweetpea plant in its third year. Can I split it into two? When would be the best time to do this?

sweet pea

The everlasting sweet pea can be a thug! Once it is happy and well established it is hard to suppress. They don’t like being moved, and they can sulk for years before growing away again. In terms of splitting, they produce suckers from the main roots in the spring. These can be teased away from the main root, but our advice is not to bother. Simply buy new plants, or grow from the seeds of your existing plant.
