Well i attempted the 'just pull them apart' method from very large clumps.
With a clump with around 50 tuber i ended up with around 10. the rest were damaged either crushed or ripped from the stem in the 'just pull them apart' method'!
This method did however work a lot better on small very dry clumps.
I gave up trying to spot any eyes and basically just cut them with a chunk of main root/stem attached. There will hopefully be an eye in there somewhere.
As an aside I had several clumps with crown gail that I just binned but hope to replant in the same bed next year (which is now clear). Any tips with treating this bed or shall i just go for it?
