Fert. & new Sib. & JI's

Hi All,

Last week I acquired a huge clump of Sibs.  They were just finishing
bloom, but needed to be removed so a fence could be repaired.  I cut off
about three fourths of the foliage, divided and planted 6-8 fan divisions.

The soil is very humus rich and moist, but I didn't use any fertilizer.
I've had good results with daylily divisions planted like this, applying
1/2 strength water soluble fertilizer once a week for the first several
weeks.  But daylilies don't have a summer dormancy period.  Do Siberians?
What is the best way to get them off to a fast start?
