Probably still thinking about it. Any strays from last year I have dug up show no signs of growth yet.  I put mine in 3 inch pots of compost in the green house. I've been planting them out this week now they have grown 2 inch shoots and have a healthy root system. Not usual recommended method but then after an 18 month winter I figure anything goes. I thought I had lost a lot of perennials but they are just starting to show through.
