Why not parlay the dividing of your perennials into a plant-swapping party? Here's how.

1. Send out invites, informing guests that they must bring at least one plant to trade.

2. To dig out plants: Using a spade, cut out the plant, including the root-ball. Carefully pull it out and cut the foliage back. Pot each one (any container will do), ensuring that roots are kept moist. Label plants with care instructions.

3. Give everyone a few minutes to pitch her plant, then let the swapping begin.
