Is it in the ground or in a pot?

Has it grown too big for the pot or are you wanting to have more plants elsewhere? If it's healthy in the pot I (personally) wouldn't disturb it - i think they look better when they have filled the pot.

There are good instructions on Sue Proctor's website (and they're based in Huddersfield so you know their advice will suit you over the border in Lancs.)
