day lilies

when can i safely separate day lilies. They have buds on them and will it keep them from blooming?

Thanks for writing. If your daylilies have buds or blooms, I'd wait until they're done for the season. You can separate them now, but they may lose many of their flowers this year because of the stress of being divided while they're in bloom.
