It’s not easy being a Wwoofer at my place as this spring when I discovered two of my prize dandelions had been weeded ;) She was devastated when I told her, reassuring her that she probably hadn’t managed to get all the root out and that it would come back in due course..and in any case I had saved seed of both (which I promptly sowed again). Well, dear Wwoofer, “Pissenlit Coeur Plein Ameliore” (originally bought in a French supermarket about 18 years ago) has returned :)
Hablitzia roots have an astonishing number of shoots waiting to grow if you cut them down…I like to think that this is an adaptation to human grazing pressure, so that we can repeatedly harvest without killing the plants ;)
Root cuttings work to quickly multiply plants , just ensure you use a sharp knife and have at least one shoot on each root slice! See the pictures!
