How to grow jerusalem artichoke from division
An easy plant to grow by dividing corns or bulbs planted out directly in fall or early spring. Right side up is with wide end down, white-pink root tip emerging at bottom, dead growth from last year on top, see last photo on our web site. Well cultivate soil to maximize yield. Late planting reduces yields. Divide in fall or spring. Do not let bulbs dry out before planting. Rodents will relocate the corns around during the winter, new plants will pop up where they leave their caches. Good weed competitor once established, fast growing plant and forms dense shade.
