We have found that it is better to pot up the smaller divisions and grow them on in light shade in a cold frame until they are well established before planting them out in late spring or early summer. Basal cuttings in spring or mid-summer in a cold frame. Harvest the shoots with plenty of underground stem when they are about 8 - 10cm above the ground.
