Planting Instructions: The order will contain a mix of rooted / sprouted and unrooted / unsprouted pieces.  For best results place unrooted / unsprouted pieces in compost in a warm place and keep well watered.  Plant out once they have sprouted and increased in size. Rooted/ sprouted pieces can be planted straight out.  Plant in spring approx 50cm apart (closer for barrier planting).
