Will separating tubers wake dormant eyes?
I've been dividing clumps of tubers for the past several days and I was wondering if anyone had any knowledge about what triggers dormant eyes to wake up? I know that if you replant an entire clump as one unit you will get quite a few stems coming up from the clump but I don't believe this represents every potential eye. So I'm wondering if the process of separating a clump into as many separate tubers as possible actually wakes more dormant eyes than you would get by keeping the clump as one unit. Any thoughts?
