I was moving one of my rainwater barrels which was next to it & there were loads of new shoots (with roots) underneath it. I cut them off & potted them up to see if they grow on. 9 in all! @KOutdoors

Me too & they make for excellent strong canes for using with runner beans etc @emch

I'm not sure it's the way you'd normally do it. It's a bit of an experiment really, but they're very much alive under their dry outer coverings @sharonhayden

Cheers Karen. I'm not sure what I'll do with them all though if successful 🤔 @KOutdoors
