    My pots have been rather neglected this year. My Aster is looking extremely sorry for itself. I'm hoping, being a perennial, it will come back to life with a bit of TLC. At the weekend, weather permitting, I am hoping to repot it along with a sprinkling of spring bulbs. Is there anything specific that I can do ar this stage? I didn't know if dividing it would help it.

    I wouldn't bother repotting this year, but maybe division and repotting in spring could help next year.
