To Cut or Not To Cut?
I talked to the professionals at two different local nurseries and both advised against the cut. They explained that San Diego soil already has high alkalinity and you're inviting mildew and fungus when you cut. We decided not to cut and 5 went in the ground today. Seed Savers recommended digging a 6" trench and burying them sprout up under 4" of soil. As the plants grow they recommend covering them with soil until you have a mound. As soon as I have mounds I will post a new picture.
